Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo sports is reporting that the Wizards have interest in San Antonio Spurs free agent power forward DeJuan Blair. The Wizards have no cap room to work with, so if they make any moves it will have to be a sign-and-trade as Wojnarowski reports. The Wizards could look to trade any of their backup forwards in Jan Vesely, Chris Singleton, Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin, or even Trevor Ariza to make room for Blair.   All of these forwards have potential but they haven’t been consistent for the Wizards.  The Spurs are known as a franchise that finds diamonds in the rough and gets the most potential out of their players, so it is entirely possible that the Wizards young forwards could blossom in San Antonio.  Washington has made it clear they aren’t done this off-season and they’d like to add one or two more pieces to finalize their roster.  The Wizards’ front office along with star point guard John Wall have talked about adding a stretch 4 to the roster during this summer. Such a player would create more open space for Wall to operate in the lane and provide him another shooter on the perimeter to help with spacing in the half court.  I’m a huge Dejuan Blair fan, and I wanted the Wizards to select him in the 2009 NBA draft. But he isn’t the type of power forward the Wizards have talked about adding. Blair is like Booker, he’s an active low post player who brings toughness and energy but he has limited range and wouldn’t be able to serve the role as a stretch 4 or pick and pop forward. A few years ago Blair looked like he would develop into a starter next to Tim Duncan, but he fell out of favor with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich this season and Tiago Splitter took over his spot in the rotation. As I said, Blair is a tough power forward who has great tenacity and energy. He stands only 6’7 but he’s a solid rebounder. In that way, he would fit with what the Wizards are trying to get out of their bigs, since their offensive firepower comes more from Wall, Beal and Webster. For his career, Blair has averaged about 8 points and 6 rebounds. His best season was 2011-12 when he played 21.3 minutes a game, shot 53.4 percent from the field, averaged 9.5 points and 5.5 rebounds a game in 62 games started.  Surprisingly, he isn’t attracting much attention in the free-agent market so far. With the Wizards looking to create more space on its roster, this move would make some sense. On the other hand, Blair’s game is like that of Wizards reserve power forward Booker but Blair isn’t as explosive around the rim.
