While his agent recently expressed disappointment that Blair wasn’t shipped out at the trade deadline, the man himself said after Tuesday’s practice that he’s happy to still be with the Spurs, reduced role or not. “I love being here, love being with this team,” said Blair, 23. “This is something that I’ve worked through the last couple years. Not playing in the playoffs and up and down in minutes, that’s something I never went through in my life. So it kind of caught me off-guard. Now I kind of expect it so I’ve just got to keep going.” San Antonio Express-News

When San Antonio, after months of trying, couldn't find a workable DeJuan Blair deal before last week's trade deadline, sources close to the situation say that Blair had interest in negotiating a buyout before Friday's deadline for playoff eligibility, since it's clear that neither Blair nor the Spurs have any interest in continuing the relationship beyond next season.

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. HoopsWorld

The San Antonio Spurs will likely move forward DeJuan Blair close to the deadline, ultimately accepting the best final offer for him, sources said. Blair has wanted a trade for more than a year, and clearly will not re-sign with the Spurs as a free agent this summer. Yahoo! Sports

Spurs forward DeJuan Blair has seen his name in nearly every speculative trade story that has hit the Internet since All-Star weekend, but his approach to Thursday’s trade deadline is educated indifference. “I’m not really worried about any of that,” said the four-year forward from Pittsburgh. “I’m just worried about right now and today. All the rest of that is BS.” San Antonio Express-News

“I’m not sweating nothing,” he said. “If I get traded, I do. If I don’t, I don’t. I’m not mad or anything because everybody knows what I can do, given the time and opportunity. So I’m just going to keep working, keep my mind clear and not worry about all that trade talk. If my agent doesn’t tell me, or the Spurs don’t tell me, I know it’s just BS, people saying where they think I should go or what would be a good fit. San Antonio Express-News
