   2010 Summer League Rosters: San Antonio Spurs

DeJuan Blair

I really don't think DeJuan Blair needs to be here. Summer league is designed for players who need to prove something; those barely on a roster, those looking to make it onto one, draft picks trying to prove their worth, and also-rans looking to use the opportunity for good European gigs. But the only thing DeJuan Blair has to prove is the long term health of his knees. And unnecessary playing time is not the answer for that.

   The Value of Minimum Contracts In The NBA

This is what the minimum salary exception is for. Redemption projects and long shot flyers, players who could be of some benefit to you even if they stopped being it for their previous employers. DeJuan Blair is in a similar situation to Casspi – the one time promising young big lost his effectiveness and his place with the Spurs after three years of decline, yet if (and this is of course a massive if) that decline wasn’t overly related to the state of his knees, a change of scenery and a run of health can make him a third big-caliber contributor once again. So too might be Anthony Morrow, now competing for the time Henry left behind with the Pelicans, a player who scored 42 points in a game as recently as a year and a half ago, and who struggled once he left the Warriors’s stat friendly system, but who surely hasn’t lost his deadly jumpshot.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
