SA offered D Blair to Detroit but nothing. Hear Boston, Miami, Portland could have interest.

At least we don't have to worry about him tearing an ACL.

We would have to likely move Fab straight up.

I guess it could be a part of a bigger deal.

If they offered Blair for nothing I think it's one of two possibilities;

1) Blair is really really angry with his role, and it's becoming a thing, or the spurs front office is sympathic to his cause and is entertaining moving him to a team that would play him

2) It's a salary thing, and in that case we have no assets we could move.

I imagine they are looking for a late first for Blair.

I say "no". I don't think Blair is worth a future first.

Blair for the right price  would be good to me.   He's a rebounder adn doesn't nee dth eball offensively..

Get it to a bigger deal moving Bass for a PG or decent SG. Have Terry really take over ball control of the 2nd unit.

Why? He could help with our rebounding problem.

How about a three way deal with Houston?

Don't think Houston likes the idea of tying up cap space in Brandon Bass.

Darn you are probably right. I think that is a reasonable return package for Bass but the question is what team would  want him. I was thinking the Bobcats because they are under the cap but they don't have anything San Antonio would want (that they would give up for Bass). Any suggestions on possible Bass destinations? I'm picking Bass because he probably is the most expendable of our players at this point and time.

Love Blair, hope he's a Celtic soon. I'd move Bass for him but that is about it. Is it's possible he could be had for cash considerations?

Bass probable destination to me is: team capped out already and next year (so the on the contract is acceptable fallout). A team with a big need of a capable jump shooting 4 as a starter or big minutes backup.

He is tough but woefully undersized.  I doubt he is over 6'7".

I'm not sure what trade the Cs can make for Blair. With the current healthy roster and salaries to match anything outside of Melo for Blair is tough to work out.

Dont love the idea of trading Terry right now but this works.

the spurs would recieve future 2nds from indy and boston. I cant see Blair in the last year of his deal being worth a 1st.


If he can be resigned for cheap he could make for a nice 4th big if bass can be moved for a longer 3rd big.
