San Antonio Spurs Sign Boris Diaw

by March 23, 2012

Two days after agreeing to a buyout with the Charlotte Bobcats, free agent forward Boris Diaw has signed with the San Antonio Spurs. Yahoo! Sports has the details: “Diaw agreed to a buyout with the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday, and cleared waivers Friday afternoon. The Spurs will sign Diaw for the remainder of the season. The deadline for signing free agents to be eligible for the playoffs is Friday. Diaw, 29, is a versatile, passing forward who fell out of favor with Bobcats coach Paul Silas this season. For his nine-year career, Diaw has averaged 9.4 points, and remained one of the league’s better passing forwards. Despite starting 28 games for Charlotte, Silas was frustrated with Diaw’s unwillingness to be more aggressive in scoring. Diaw’s fitness issues have dogged him throughout his career, but he’s still shown an ability to be a productive offensive player.”
