San Antonio has traded forward Boris Diaw to the Utah Jazz, league sources tell @TheVertical.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) July 5, 2016
The Spurs needed to move Diaw to help clear cap space to sign Pau Gasol. The Spurs get 2015 second-round pick Olivier Hanlan back in the trade. He played overseas last year.
Diaw is a stretch-four, and will provide front-court depth for the Jazz. He averaged 6.4 points in just 18 minutes per game. He'll add a needed scoring boost off the bench for the Jazz. The Jazz traded for George Hill earlier this offseason and traded away Trey Burke.
Hanlan is a 6-foot-4 guard who played at Boston College. He's just 23 years old and played for a Lithuanian team last year. He was the No. 42 overall pick in the 2015 draft.Back to the San Antonio Spurs Newsfeed
