Boris Diaw

Spurs make it official, bring Diaw back

The San Antonio Spurs officially announced today that they have re-signed forward Boris Diaw.

Diaw had previously been reported to be returning to the team for a three-year contract in the $22 million range before the deal became official today.

Diaw had a big impact against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, averaging 6.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game in the five-game series and caused some headaches with his versatility and ability to play and defend inside and out.

According to some reports, Diaw was pursued by several teams before he chose to return to San Antonio.

With Diaw’s signing, the Spurs now have 14 of the 15 roster spots filled. The 15th could go to Aron Baynes if he signs the Spurs’ qualifying offer. Bryce Cotton is also an option, as he was signed to a partially guaranteed deal.
