News: Blair signed a three-year, $6 million deal with the Mavericks on Wednesday, before he was sent to the Wizards via sign-and-trade, Yahoo! Sports reports. Impact: Blair played his typical modest role in Dallas last season, averaging 6.4 points (on 53.4 percent shooting), 4.7 rebounds, 0.9 assists, and 0.8 steals in 15.6 minutes. With two frontcourt options to consider behind starters Marcin Gortat and Nene Hilario -- namely, Kevin Seraphin and Kris Humphries -- a similar role may be entrusted to the 6-7, 265 Blair.(RotoWire, )

News: Blair will be sent to Washington in a sign-and-trade, which will be finalized Wednesday, ESPN's Marc Stein reports. Impact: Blair signed a deal for the minimum with Dallas last season and developed into a major contributor down the stretch in the Mavs' frontcourt. Dallas didn't have the cap room to retain his services, so the Wizards stayed busy, after already brining in veteran Paul Pierce this offseason. With Nene and Marcin Gortat already in the fold, it's doubtful that Blair will see enough minutes to be a solid fantasy contributor, but he has the skill to take advantage of an injury if one were to occur ahead of him on the depth chart.(RotoWire, )
