It’s common in the NBA to have team owners shopping around players because, after all, it’s about market value, but typically players don’t admit it to the media.
However, DeJuan Blair just doesn’t care.
It’s not shocking considering he has been on the trade block for most of the condensed season, but via Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he isn’t staying mum about it.
He has one more year on his rookie contract, but indications are the Spurs are considering trading Blair after advancing to the Western Conference final without needing much from him. The Spurs signed forward Boris Diaw to a two-year contract this summer. Diaw started all 14 postseason games in 2012 after arriving in San Antonio via a midseason trade.
“Hopefully, I stay a Spur, but if it doesn’t happen, life moves on,” Blair said. “They’ve got me on the trade market and they’ll do the best to get me in the greatest situation possible.”
