As reported by Mike Monroe of Spurs Nation, the agreement between the San Antonio Spurs and veteran unrestricted free agent Boris Diaw that was confirmed by his agent, Doug Neustadt, two days ago was made official by the club on Thursday.
The 30-year-old center-forward, a teammate of point guard Tony Parker during their high school days in Paris, France, joined the Spurs on March 23 after being bought out of his contract by the Bobcats.
Diaw played in 20 regular season games for the Spurs, averaging 4.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. He started in all 14 playoff games last season and averaged 6.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in the post-season.
“Boris was a key addition to our team late last season and we are happy to have him back,” Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said. “The depth of his game and his basketball IQ make him a special player.”
The contract is for two seasons and a total of $9.2 million with a player option on the final year.
