Totally agree - no reason now to worry about having to possibly retain Blair (for fear of not finding other potential big men), but he's gotta have some value out there for other teams with his hustle and production (when given minutes). He just needs to be paired up with a stretch/combo 3/4 (i.e. a Gallinari or KD).
