Blair signed a contract Wednesday with the Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings of the Chinese Basketball Association, international basketball writer David Pick reports.

Blair will head overseas for the first time in his career following seven seasons in the NBA with the Spurs, Mavericks and Wizards. The 6-foot-7 power forward had largely been out of the Wizards' rotation the last two seasons and had been out of basketball since February, when he was traded to the Suns and subsequently waived without playing a game for the team. A strong season with Jiangsu could perhaps put Blair on the radar for a contract with an NBA team when the CBA season concludes in the spring, but Blair likely wouldn't have more than a minimal role off the bench if he were to return to the NBA.
