Andray Blatche plans to decline his player option for next season and become a free agent.

Blatche still hopes to return to the Brooklyn Nets for a third straight season.

“I’m going to see what’s out there for me,” Blatche said. “I would love to stay here. They gave me my first opportunity. So if things work out, hopefully I’ll be back here. If not I just want to thank the fans and the whole organization for giving me that second chance.”
