Fox San Antonio - Maximum Sports
Spurs center DeJuan Blair's agent tells Max Sports the 2012-13 season will more than likely be Blair's last with the Silver and Black. Blair is a free agent at season's end. "Next year, it's his choice on what he wants to do, and chances are he wouldn't be in San Antonio, obviously", said Happy Walters, DeJuan's LA based agent.
Blair lost his spot in the Spurs rotation late in the season, and Walters has no idea why.
"Pop (Gregg Popovich) is a good coach and well respected, and he doesn't need to answer to me or Dejuan. But Pop made his decisions for whatever they were, and as far as I know, he hasn't sat down with DeJuan and told him why.
Based on who they've signed, it doesn't seem like they're planning on keeping him, or if they do keep him this year, he's not going to be a big part of it. They are certainly planning on life without Dejuan, with who they've signed."
Yesterday, Spurs GM RC Buford said he understands Blair's frustrations, but wouldn't apologize for the rotation the team decided to go with in the post-season.
Walters says Blair is working out in Las Vegas this off-season, and is in the best shape of his life.
Buford said he would love to have DeJuan contribute to the team next year, but if he asks Pop to not be with the Spurs, the team will address the situation and explore their options. Blair, to this point, has not asked to be traded.
