DeJuan Blair's season with the San Antonio Spurs has been disappointing this year. He's only played in 37 games this season and averaging 14mpg when he has played. His time has come mainly in blowout wins or losses along when head coach Gregg Popovich has rested his big stars or injuries have happened. While Blair's stock may be low, that doesn't mean there might not be a team interested in his services. In fact, it might be the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. The latest trade talks from Brendan Bowers has suggested that the Miami Heat look at adding DeJuan Blair from San Antonio. San Antonio is looking to move the young forward who has been a bit inconsistent in his early career for a veteran with a proven track record and if the Spurs make a deal in the coming days, Blair is likely on the move. (Sports.Gather.com) Spurs fans have wanted Blair moved for a while now, especially with some of his public complaints on Twitter through the years. It's not known if Blair would be moved, especially to the defending champions. The Blair situation is a bit tricky that online trade machines may not tell the whole story. The fact Blair's contract is a low salary expiring deal makes it extremely difficult to trade in the league. Many Spurs fans have talked about moving Blair to a bad team, which is an obvious choice since the team wouldn't have to see him in the playoffs with added motivation. The problem with trading Blair to a bad team is that DeJuan's expiring deal doesn't guarantee a bad team his services for the future. When asking for a trade like this, you have to look at it from the other team's point of view. Why would they want to give up a draft pick or give anything in return to San Antonio when the season is lost and the player may walk as a free agent without making an impact on the payroll? The other side of this is why would the Spurs want to help a championship contender? If Blair would be traded to a team like the Heat, the draft pick would be an extremely poor one in return. The only upside in this equation would be for the contender who have traded for Blair. For example, if the Miami Heat acquire Blair from the Spurs and win the NBA title again, the Heat could re-sign him for cheap or he could walk away at the end of the season likely earning himself a larger and longer deal in return. All the Spurs would get is an irrelevant draft pick for their current plans to win a title, especially if the Spurs were to make the Finals and face the Heat. What do you think Spurs fans? Should the Spurs think about trading Blair to the Heat or should they let him sit out his current deal and let him walk away at the end of the season without having a chance to hurt the Spurs in the playoffs?
