NBA trade rumors: DeJuan Blair could draw interest from Celtics, Heat, Trail Blazers

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Spurs' fourth-year forward is averaging a career-low 13.9 minutes per game.

San Antonio Spurs forward DeJuan Blair is drawing interest from several teams after the Detroit Pistons turned down a deal to acquire the 23-year-old.

According to ESPN NBA insider Chris Broussard, the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers have all expressed interest in acquiring Blair, who will be a free agent following the 2012-13 season and will earn just more than $1 million this season.

Each of those teams could use some added frontcourt depth, and Blair is a career 8.0-point, 6.0-rebound player who can provide solid minutes in a reserve role. The Spurs currently own the NBA's best record at 41-12 and have plenty of depth to bolster their draft prospects for the future.
