    Default RUMOUR: Raptors Inquired About Spurs Blair

    ESPN's Chris Broussard mention earlier this morning that apparently the Raptors and Spurs had some talks about DeJuan Blair. All talks are now off according to Broussard. That being said, would you guys like Blair here in Toronto?

    @Chris_Broussard Will SA finally part with DeJuan Blair? Word is he could be gone before 2/21. SA talked with Toronto wks ago

    I wouldn't mind. He's an improvement over gray, so he fills a need. He wouldn't hinder JV's development because he can't command big minutes due to his knees. Decent backup but little defensive game to speak of. I wouldn't give up much for him though. Maybe Anderson or gray with a potential second rounder. No more than that though.

    I've always liked Blair. He isn't going to dominate a game, but he can certainly dominate on the boards. Is definitely a rotation worthy NBA big.

    I'd be interested for sure, perhaps a Anderson and Lucas for Blair and Corey Joseph...I realize Joseph isn't ready to be a #2 but he'd be worth trying to develop

    I'd take anyone from the Spurs. ANYONE.
    Don't hate me because I'm an optimist.

    Ok I always liked his skill level, but he's just a depth big. Too slow to guard most PFs, and way too small to guard Cs. I admit he somehow always produces, but he just doesn't bring anything to help the team get to another level. HE is not an improvement over Gray because he'd be far worse defensively as a centre. His lack of quickness might lead to him losing playing time to Acy at the PF. In the end, I'd have a hard time seeing him as the right 3rd big next to JV and Amir, and not a better depth big than what we already have for the respective roles you need in depth....again, there's a reason he's not playing in SAN, and it's not his skill.

    I would be ok with trying to get Joseph. You could trade him straight up for Anderson, who would be good insurance for San Antonio. No need to involve Blair or trade Lucas and still have a depth problem at PG.
