Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw has reportedly agreed to a deal with French club Levallois Metropolitans.

Diaw looked like a shell of himself in Utah last season, averaging just 4.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.6 minutes per game. The 35-year-old veteran's NBA career could very well be over, though his contract does include an NBA opt out clause.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw said he's not 100 percent sure he will play in the NBA next season.

He added he may play in Europe this year. Diaw was waived back on July 13 and he said he's had a few contacts with NBA teams. 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.

Jazz waive F/C Boris Diaw.

The French forward had a guarantee coming up and the team waived him before the Saturday deadline. Diaw will reportedly not go back to the Jazz, which makes sense after the Jazz added so much depth in the last two days. He'll likely sign head to a contender on a minimum deal.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Utah is expected to waive Boris Diaw, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

The Jazz has until July 15th to waive Diaw, or his $7.5 million contract becomes guaranteed. Utah will use the newly created cap space to help facilitate the signings of Ekpe Udoh, Jonas Jerebko and Thabo Sefolosha. It is possible Utah tries to find a trading partner that would be interested in Diaw's expiring contract.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw said he would like to remain with the Jazz in 2017-18.

"I don't expect any promises," Diaw said. "I'm just in wait-and-see mode. I'm not sweating over it. I'm not anxious, but … I liked the season I had here. I enjoyed being here, so I would like to be back." The Jazz have a $7.5 million team option on Diaw and will likely retain the veteran forward unless they feel like Trey Lyles is ready for more minutes. In 73 appearances, the 35-year-old forward averaged 4.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.6 minutes per game.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw made a start against the Warriors on Saturday with 10 points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

He actually did a nice job defensively and was on the court during some key Jazz runs. The Jazz also did keep the pace down and really played well on defense, but Kevin Durant is still Kevin Durant. Expect similar minutes for Diaw in Game 4, but probably not as many counting stats.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw is listed as the starter over Joe Johnson for Saturday against the Warriors.

It's an odd move and it likely means the Jazz will do all they can to slow this down. Plus, coach Quin Snyder talked about going under screens in the pre-game, so maybe that has something to do with this move. Johnson would be a riskier DFS play while Diaw is a major gamble.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw returned to the bench in Game 1 vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, scoring four points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 20 minutes.

He was benched in favor of Joe Johnson, but still got plenty of burn because Derrick Favors (back) wasn't effective. Regardless of where Diaw starts the game, he's not a fantasy option in most formats.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw said he thinks he will be in the starting lineup against the Clippers for Game 1 on Saturday.

Feel free to chalk this up to misleading information, but it does make sense to bring Derrick Favors off the bench until he can show he can play longer stints. Diaw will likely have to guard Blake Griffin out of the gate and isn't expected to do much scoring in this series.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw went a perfect 9-of-9 from the field to score a season-high 19 points vs. the Spurs on Sunday, adding three rebounds and two assists in just 19 minutes.

David West also hit a season-high in scoring vs. San Antonio this year, so maybe the veterans have a little edge vs. their former team. Diaw even hit a mid-range jumper and a 3-pointer tonight, but this is obviously not a reflection of his fantasy value. Leave him on the wire.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw scored six points with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 21 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

It did not go well for Diaw and the Jazz are missing Derrick Favors (knee) right now. Sure, Favors may be playing on one leg, but that one leg is probably better than Diaw or Jeff Withey. Diaw can remain on the wire in just about all leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw will start against the Clippers on Saturday.

The Jazz had the same plan against the Clippers in their last game with Diaw as the starter. In that one back on Mar. 13, Diaw scored five points with three boards in just 21 minutes, so there's not much to like here from a fantasy perspective. Joe Johnson scored 14 points in 28 minutes in that game, as well.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw drew the start on Wednesday in place of Joe Johnson, but finished with just five points, one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer.

Diaw played 14 minutes and this is a predictably quiet return -- he's averaging 15.5 minutes off the bench this season, and that only goes up to 21.2 minutes as a starter. There's no reason to touch him in most leagues.

Boris Diaw - F/C - Spurs

Boris Diaw will start at power forward and Joe Johnson will move to the bench.

The Jazz will go with their bigger lineup with Kristaps Porzingis starting for the Knicks. Diaw is likely just going to play minutes in the teens, so he's not someone fantasy owners should be counting on tonight.
