Blair later tweeted this:

Original post: Marc Stein is reporting that the Mavericks and Wizards are currently engaged in negotiations for a sign-and-trade involving DeJuan Blair.

Eddie Sefko is reporting that Dallas will likely receive a trade exception or cash in return for Blair. The Mavs are not expected to take back any players.
