Boris Diaw PF/C SA 3 Months

The Spurs and Boris Diaw have agreed on a three-year, $22.5 million contract, with the third season partially guaranteed.

The 32-year-old forward just won his first NBA championship with San Antonio and there was never much doubt that he'd re-sign. He averaged 9.2 points, 0.8 threes, 4.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 26 minutes per game during the playoffs, all slightly above his regular-season averages. His production doesn't do fantasy owners much good in standard leagues, unfortunately, but he's tailor-made for the Spurs' selfless offense.

The Blazers will reportedly pursue unrestricted free agent Boris Diaw.

Diaw's French buddy Nic Batum could factor in here, and the Blazers could have certainly used him with little depth in their frontcourt this past year. Talks are likely in the exploratory stage.

Kawhi Leonard is eligible for an extension on July 1 and the most the Spurs could offer him would be a five-year, $79 million deal.

He made just $3.1 million last year and severely outplayed that contract on his way to the Finals MVP. Leonard is going to be a bigger part of the offense next season and the Spurs may want to give him his long-term deal now or else he'd become a restricted free agent in the summer of 2015.

Boris Diaw will play for France's national team during the FIBA World Cup this summer.

Diaw is coming off a long year of basketball, having won the 2013 EuroBasket competition last summer before a long march to the Finals with San Antonio. He said he'll take "a couple of days to relax" before getting back out on the court, and his excellent play this year should set him up for a nice payday as an unrestricted free agent.

Boris Diaw, who will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, finished the Spurs' Game 5 victory with five points, nine rebounds, six assists and one steal in 38 minutes of action.

Diaw's savvy passing and unusual skills for a big man have never been in question, but lousy conditioning nearly derailed his NBA career before he found a perfect fit with the Spurs. He's 32 years old and showed throughout the playoffs that he can be an integral part of a winning team, so his next contract should earn him at least as much as this season's $4.7 million annual salary.

LeBron James gave the Spurs credit for putting Boris Diaw in the starting lineup following Game 4 on Thursday.

"Implementing Diaw into the lineup has given them another point guard on the floor," James said. Diaw dropped nine dimes to go with his eight points and nine boards in 36 minutes in Game 4 and has really helped face the floor on offense. He's going to be an unrestricted free agent and has probably earned himself some money over the past two games.

Boris Diaw replaced Tiago Splitter in the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 3 and had nine points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer as the Spurs beat the Heat 111-92 to take a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals.

Diaw did a little bit of everything tonight and given the results, as well as the fact the Spurs shot a ridiculous 75.8 percent in the first half (an NBA Finals record), you can expect to see Diaw starting again in Thursday's Game 4. The winner of Game 3 in the Finals goes on to win 83 percent of the time, but the Spurs failed to beat the Heat after winning Game 3 in a blowout at home a year ago. If Diaw, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, and the Spurs regulars have anything to say about it, the result will be different this time around.

Boris Diaw appears to be in the starting lineup for the Spurs on Tuesday, which would send C Tiago Splitter to the bench.

This move wouldn't be surprising, as Splitter came off the bench for several games against the Thunder. We probably won't know for sure who is starting just until game time, but for now it sounds like Diaw is in and Splitter is out, as the Spurs prepare to face the Heat for Game 3 in Miami. If it sticks, Tim Duncan is your center and Diaw will start at power forward.

Boris Diaw was fantastic off the bench with 26 points during a series-clinching win on Saturday, adding four boards, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 8-of-14 shooting.

The Thunder didn't pay much attention to Diaw, who had wide-open shots throughout the night. Coach Gregg Popovich moving Diaw into the second-half starting lineup in Game 5 was huge and that carried over into tonight. He's far from the most graceful player in the NBA, but his understanding of spacing and helping his teammates has carried him with the Spurs lately.

Boris Diaw started the second half of Thursday's win over the Thunder, finishing with 13 points, six boards, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

His versatility was on display tonight and coach Gregg Popovich put him in all sorts of different spots on the floor. Diaw doesn't waste many dribbles and he also helps spread the ball around while his defense is better than a lot of people give him credit for. Chances are Diaw will wind up in the starting lineup in Game 6 on Saturday.
