Blogging the draft: DeJuan Blair (finally)
|06.25.09 at 11:01 pm ET|
Leave it to the Spurs to take the most productive college player this side of top pick Blake Griffin (and in the second round, no less). With the 37th pick, San Antonio selected Pitt’s DeJuan Blair who was merely the best player in the Big East and who dominated No. 2 overall pick Hasheem Thabeet in their matchups.
Blair’s knees gave teams cause for concern, but he never should have fallen this far.
Two other Big East players–DaJuan Summers from Georgetown (Detroit) and Sam Young from Pitt (Memphis)–went just ahead of Blair. Summers also seems like a steal, while Young is one of the oldest players in the draft.
The Celtics pick is No. 58 and we’ll have more when they make their selection.
