An active user of social media, Diaw made his own contract announcement on Twitter. His Twitter posting on Sunday evening: “Hey Spurs fans, good news I stay in San Antonio for a few more years. Lets win it again.”
An NBA source familiar with Diaw’s negotiations said the deal is for three seasons at $22 million. The third season is partially guaranteed.
