NBA: Mavericks, DeJuan Blair Near 1-Year Deal

Jul 30 2013, 11:48pm CDT | by

The Dallas Mavericks and forward-center DeJuan Blair are nearing a one-year deal, per multiple reports.

Power forward-center DeJuan Blair is on the verge of becoming a Dallas Maverick

According to ESPN Dallas/Fort Worth, Blair is nearing a one-year deal with the Mavericks, citing sources with knowledge of the situation. Once made official, the contract is expected to be at the league minimum of $1.4 million. 

Blair himself posted the development on his Twitter account, saying, "Dallas!!!!! Now let's have some fun!!!!"

Marc Stein of ESPN also tweeted about it. 

"Surprise development in Mavs' big man search: Hearing Dallas in serious talks on signing DeJuan Blair. Told deal looks 'promising'"

Blair's exit from the San Antonio Spurs seemed inevitable after he struggled to get more playing time under head coach Gregg Popovich. The Spurs actually looked at some options for him prior to the February trade deadline but opted to keep him for the meantime.  

All in all, he played just 18 minutes in three games in the 2013 NBA Finals against the Miami Heat

Blair will look to resurrect his career in Dallas, joining a crowded Mavericks frontcourt which includes recently-signed center Samuel Dalembert  as well as Brandan Wright and Bernard James. 

There's also speculation that oft-injured center Greg Oden will join Dallas, but it is not considered as a front-runner, per NBC Sports' Kurt Helin. Oden's other close pursuers include Miami, San Antonio, the New Orleans Pelicans, Atlanta Hawks and Sacramento Kings.  

Blair, the Spurs' 2009 second-round pick, averaged 5.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game in the 2012-13 NBA season.

San Antonio Spurs v Dallas Mavericks - Game Six
Not every franchise can be the Cleveland Cavaliers. Free agency has been a fun romp for fans and an even better time for franchises such as Cleveland that won big on the market, but beneath it all resides a sad state of affairs, a laundry list of franchises that gambled it all and lost. Take Houston, for example. James Harden and Dwight Howard are around, sure, but the front office's continued roll of the dice has left the team worse off than ...
