DeJuan Blair And Sam Young Wrap Up NBA Preseason

Former Pitt stars DeJuan Blair and Sam Young have wrapped up the NBA preseason and are ready to begin their second NBA seasons.

Both Young and Blair saw a significant amount of minutes in the preseason and each finished in the top fifteen in scoring among second-year players.

Blair finished 8th, averaging 12.6 ppg and shot just under 50% from the field in 25 minutes of action per game. Young's 11.4 ppg were good for 14th and he played just under 22 minutes per game. Blair's ppg was second among all Spurs players behind only Tony Parker's 13.3.

Blair also excelled in rebounding, leading all NBA sophomores with 8.7 rebounds per game. Even more remarkable is the large margin he finished ahead of everyone else - the next closest player was at 6.6 per game. And Blair's rebounding totals were good for sixth overall in the entire league.

The 2010-11 season should be exciting for both players. Blair is expected to start on a team that has championship aspirations and while Young will come off the bench, he'll could be a major contributor for the Grizzlies.
