DeJuan Blair Signs Deal With Russian Team

He’ll have a mandatory out-clause for whenever the lockout ends. He’s got insurance for his ACL-less knees. He’s going to stay in decent shape for when the season begins. He’ll be making bread. So, DeJuan Blair signing a deal to play with Krasnye Krylya for the ’11-12 season is a win-win for both Blair and the Spurs. From Yahoo!: “San Antonio Spurs forward DeJuan Blair has signed to play with Russia’s Krasnye Krylya Samara for the 2011-12 season, his agent told Yahoo! Sports on Friday. Because he’s under contract with the Spurs, Blair’s deal has an out clause that allows him to return to the NBA this season should the league-imposed lockout ends, said his agent, Happy Walters.”
