Jun 11, 2013; San Antonio, TX, USA; San Antonio Spurs center DeJuan Blair (45) and Miami Heat center Joel Anthony (50) go for a rebound during the fourth quarter of game three of the 2013 NBA Finals at the AT

The Warriors showed interest in Blair in the past, but his price was too high.  Now that he is a free agent, the Warriors can go after the lanky center.  Despite playing without ACLs in his knees, Blair has had no major knee issues since entering the league.

At 6’7”, Blair is extremely undersized for a center, but his 7’2” wingspan makes up for the lack of height.  His length allows him to inhale rebounds and get his shots off cleanly.  A prime example of Blair’s talent can be seen in highlights from a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder his rookie year.  Blair finished with 28 points and 21 rebounds.

Blair might have trouble against some of the bigger centers in the league, but his talent was definitely being limited in San Antonio.  He is a quality center who could put up points and pull down rebounds for the second team.
