DeJuan Blair said he wants another shot in the NBA.
"That’s my main goal,’’ Blair said. "That’s what the development league is for. I’m just trying to enjoy this experience. I’m still writing my story, so everything will work out as long as I keep doing what I’ve got to do.’’ Blair is an undersized center at 6-8 and 270 pounds, but he's working on becoming a power forward in the D-League. The problem right now is that he's not in game shape and he admitted that he needs to shed a few pounds. If Blair does get another shot in the NBA, it will likely come in the form of a 10-day contract. Feb 9 - 10:38 AM

The Texas Legends (the Mavs D-League affiliate) have acquired DeJuan Blair off waivers.

Blair played for the Wizards last season, but is not expected to have any fantasy impact in Dallas this year.

DeJuan Blair has officially signed a contract with Jiangsu Tonxi of China.

At 27 years old, Blair could potentially make his way back into the NBA at some point, but he's never been a factor in fantasy hoops.

DeJuan Blair is close to signing a deal with Jiangsu Tonxi in China, according to Beijing Youth Daily.

Blair finished the 2015-16 season as a free agent and will head to China in an attempt to rebuild his value for an NBA return. While Blair could return to the NBA after the Chinese season ends in February, the 27-year-old wouldn't have any fantasy value as a bench player.

Misdemeanor battery charges against DeJuan Blair have been dropped.

Blair was cited for misdemeanor batter in July, but prosecutors have decided not to move forward with criminal charges. Legal issues aside, the 27-year-old is still a free agent and doesn't have any fantasy value heading into 2016-17.

The Suns waive F/C DeJuan Blair.

He reportedly never even traveled to Phoenix following a trade from the Wizards. Some team might look to sign Blair.

The Suns are expected to waive DeJuan Blair.

Blair is nothing more than a low-end backup big man in the NBA, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all settings. This report means that Kris Humphries will likely remain in Phoenix, but he's not a fantasy option.

The Suns are expected to waive Kris Humphries or DeJuan Blair.

It'll likely be Blair here as the Suns have one too many guys on their roster. Blair can be left on the wire in all leagues.

DeJuan Blair was traded to the Suns as part of Thursday's deadline deal sending Markieff Morris to the Wizards.

Blair, Kris Humphries and a protected first-round pick were the assets sent to Phoenix in return for Kieff, who should immediately slot into the starting lineup. Blair barely saw the court in Washington and that's unlikely to change in Phoenix.

DeJuan Blair played 23 minutes off the bench against the Pacers on Friday with 12 points, six rebounds, one assist and two steals.

That's a pretty solid effort for a guy who wasn't in the rotation earlier this season. Blair played the most minutes among the big men tonight, but that is partially due to garbage time. Marcin Gortat (knee) is only day-to-day, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too aggressive on adding Blair, Drew Gooden or Nene.

DeJuan Blair played 13 minutes against the Bulls on Monday with eight points, three rebounds, one assist and no turnovers.

The Wizards bench came up pretty big today, especially in the frontcourt. Blair has been on the injury report for much of this season due to a knee issue, so he likely wouldn't get big minutes unless the Wizards are totally decimated.

DeJuan Blair (knee) will be a game-time decision vs. the Raptors on Friday.

Blair was on the active list for Wednesday's game but he never left the bench. He's unlikely to be part of the rotation with Nene back in action and Drew Gooden (calf) also expected to play limited minutes off the bench.
Fri, Jan 8, 2016 05:23:00 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) was available to play on Wednesday but he picked up a DNP-CD.

Blair wasn't part of Randy Wittman's rotation until injuries swept through the frontcourt, and he vanished again tonight with Nene returning to action.
Wed, Jan 6, 2016 11:30:00 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) is active against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He might not play because Nene (calf) has a good chance to play on Wednesday. Blair can be ignored almost everywhere.
Wed, Jan 6, 2016 05:32:00 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) will not play vs. Miami on Sunday.

You wouldn't notice if Blair was on or off the injury report, an illustration of his relevance in fantasy leagues.
