Surprise development in Mavs' big man search: Hearing Dallas in serious talks on signing DeJuan Blair. Told deal looks "promising"— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 30, 2013
Surprising news from the FA front today, as Stein reports that the Mavs are looking into ex-Spurs' reserve big man DeJuan Blair. Blair's minutes dropped from 21 to 14 last year, and his numbers from 9.5-5.5 to 5.5-4 but this would probably be a solid pick-up for the Mavs. Blair is only 6'7" and has no ACLs, but he is a very solid rebounder for a team that's likely to be lacking in that category, and he has some mid-range touch. He's especially good on the offensive boards, and offensively, around the basket.
More on this as it happens.
