IMO he is exempt.
Did some more research:
So Blackburn played more than 11 games in his "18" year. That means that his waiver exemption is reduced to 4 years or 80 games. IMO still exempt.
Yeah, that's where the confusion lies...if he is 21 now, is it the original 80 games that still apply, or is it now the 60 games that now apply. The CBA is not clear...
