DeJuan Blair will be entering unrestricted free agency this season and it will be a complete surprise to no one when the Spurs don’t attempt to keep him. San Antonio has been trying to shop him for the last two seasons and have been unsuccessful.

The Spurs could look to Landry as an off-the-bench scorer to compliment Tim Duncan. Although, it will be painful to see veteran forward playing in the same jersey as the team that extinguished the Warriors’ playoff hopes this year, this move certainly makes sense to a degree. Landry is  superior to Blair in every way, and even averaged less minutes last season.

If anything, you could look to the fact that Landry’s spectacular play in the playoffs perhaps impressed coach Gregg Popovich.
