DeJuan Blair Possibly Landing in Atlanta?

The San Antonio Spurs have been shopping DeJuan Blair, which isn’t a huge surprise since he has been on the block since last year. Blair fell out Gregg Popovich’s rotation during the postseason and has been playing limited minutes this season. Blair can walk as an unrestricted free agent after the season, and the Spurs understand that he’ll likely look for greener pastures.
That’s why San Antonio is trying to move him before the deadline, even if it’s just for a draft pick. While no clear suitor has emerged yet, San Antonio seems confident that they can find a taker for Blair and it could be the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks are, of course, focused on their Josh Smith plans. However, Blair landing in Atlanta after a Smith deal is complete is a possibility, according to league sources.
