HoopsHype DeJuan Blair rumors

August 1, 2013 Updates

The 29-year-old Johnson, who became an NBA player in 2011 and has played for the Hawks, was initially campaigning for a mini mid-level contract. But with remaining attractive free agents like DeJuan Blair and Antawn Jamison in the veteran's minimum financial ballpark -- Blair signed with the Mavericks for that amount -- the free-agent market is quickly changing. "I think the mini mid-level will be tough to get at this time," the source said. ESPN.com

Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks -- who remain one of six finalists for the services of Greg Oden -- are in advanced talks to add Blair to a revamped rotation of front-court sidekicks for Dirk Nowitzki. With one source saying Tuesday that a deal looks "promising," the former Spurs center appears poised to join new projected starting center Samuel Dalembert and the re-signed duo of Brandan Wright and Bernard James in a posse of centers to play alongside Nowitzki after Dallas lost out to Houston in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes.

Over a dozen teams have expressed some level of interest in Blair, but the 24-year-old is hoping to sign a multi-year deal or have the San Antonio Spurs facilitate a sign-and-trade so that he can retain his Bird rights. So far, the Spurs haven’t been very cooperative since they obviously won’t agree to take part in a sign-and-trade that doesn’t benefit them. HoopsWorld

If the sign-and-trade option falls through, Blair may have to take a one-year deal, play well this season and then try to secure the multi-year deal he desires next summer. The Chicago Bulls have been linked to Blair this offseason and seem like a realistic landing spot for him since they’re a top-tier team that has minutes to offer. The L.A. Clippers have expressed interest in Blair, but only have a minimum deal and limited role to offer the young big man. HoopsWorld
