Boris Diaw Annouces His Retirement From The NBA

Posted by

Most known for his championship run with the Spurs in 2014, Boris Diaw is finished with basketball and has called it quits.

The 36-year-old announced his retirement on Twitter, while being on a bot with Tony Parker and Rony Turiaf in a Bros. Stories video. Tony Parker, Diaw and Turiaf all played for the French national team in the past.

Diaw hadn’t played since the 2016-17 season, where he last played with the Utah Jazz. The Jazz waived the forward last summer and he spent the remainder of his year playing with the Levallois Metropolitans of the LNB Pro A league in France.

Selected No.21 in the 2003 Nba Draft by the Atlanta Hawks, Diaw was with them for 2 years before being traded to the Suns where he improved on his career averaging 13.3 ppg, 6.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game in the 2008-09 season.

Diaw provided a ton of help for the Spurs in 2013-14, averaging 9.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists and shot over 52 percent in 25 minutes per game that season. The Spurs won the championship in 2014 and Diaw was a critical part of that.
