Wizards Interested In DeJuan Blair

The Wizards have interest in free agent forward DeJuan Blair, sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter).  A sign-and-trade deal remains a consideration, but the Spurs may be unmoved by the choices they have in a swap with Washington.

For his last couple of years in San Antonio, Blair hasn't had a clearly defined role and the big man has spoken openly about his desire for more playing time, whether it be with the Spurs or another club.  Blair's gripe first started last season when, despite playing 21+ minutes per contest in the regular season, he was barely featured in the playoffs.  This season, he played a career low 14 minutes per contest and saw just 6.3 minutes of burn in the club's Finals run.

In four seasons for the 24-year-old, Blair has averaged 7.8 points with 5.8 rebounds per contest.
