Welcome to the realities of the new NBA — Diaw may be on the move so the Spurs can sign Pau Gasol.
The Jazz worked to find a taker for his contract throughout the week.
Boris Diaw‘s slow motion, high-IQ game with gifted passing has been a perfect fit with the Spurs system — really, systems (plural) — over the past few years.
Plus, in what can be a button-down organization, he was the guy with an espresso machine in his locker and who always gave honest answers.
Diaw’s game would fit well on a number of teams around the league.
He’s a kind of point forward — he can’t run the point but he has a lot of those skills, shot 36 percent from three last season, and is one of the best passing bigs in the league.
Diaw is a fantastic locker room presence and he does bring some expresso to the locker room, but his on-court contributions figure to drop again at age 35.
