NBA Trade Rumors: Washington Wizards Want San Antonio Spurs DeJuan Blair

The Washington Wizards recently said they were in the market for a ‘stretch four’ and while I’m not sure DeJuan Blair of the San Antonio Spurs fits that mold, their interest in the Pittsburgh star is apparently valid.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Wizards are hopeful that they’ll be able to work out a sign and trade deal with the San Antonio Spurs for Blair, but the Spurs may not have much interest in doing so.

Per Wojo:

Washington has interest in free agent DeJuan Blair, sources tell Y! Sign-and-trade a consideration, but Spurs may be unmoved by choices.

A free agent, the big man saw a dramatic loss in playing time for the Spurs this past season as both Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw replaced him in the rotation.

However, now with Diaw a pending free agent at season end, the Spurs might not be inclined to let Blair walk in free agency, especially if his price is cheap.

The Wizards don’t have many tradeable assets, so finding the pieces may be difficult for both sides. Still, it’s something to keep an eye on.
