The San Antonio Spurs re-signed forward Boris Diaw on Thursday.

Diaw started last season with the Charlotte Bobcats before being placed on waivers on March 21. In 37 games with the Bobcats, Diaw averaged 7.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists.

The nine-year pro signed with the Spurs two days later. He averaged 4.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 20 contests with San Antonio.

"Boris was a key addition to our team late last season and we are happy to have him back," Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said. "The depth of his game and his basketball IQ make him a special player."

Diaw has appeared in 680 NBA games (468 starts) with Atlanta, Phoenix, Charlotte and San Antonio, averaging 9.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.0 assists.

In 53 playoff games, he has averaged 11.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists.
