Found August 15, 2013 on Project Spurs:
It seems not too long ago the San Antonio Spurs added big man Boris Diaw midway through the 2011-12 NBA season.   Since then, Boris has made an impact on both ends of the court showing great passing ability and scoring whether it be in the paint or from long distance. Yet despite his contributions to San Antonio, it remains to be seen whether he will remain in black and silver for the remainder of his career.   Diaw has one more season under contract with the Spurs (2013-14 season) which means the Spurs front office will have to decide if they want to keep him beyond next season or call this season his swan song in San Antonio.   In an interview with French site Sport24.com, Diaw said he is taking a wait-and-see approach to his future in San Antonio unlike his French counterpart, Tony Parker, who is likely to finish his career with the Spurs.   Tony Parker's dream is to finish his career with the San Antonio Spurs, and you?    For Tony, this is normal since he started with the Spurs. For me, it's different. I still have a one year contract with San Antonio. Then we'll see. We just had a great adventure in the playoffs even though we would have preferred that it ended with a title.   As mentioned before, he has an expiring contract (worth $4,702,500) which could be attractive for a team looking for cap space should the Spurs want to use that as trade bait.   However, there's also the strong connection he has to his teammates and fellow countrymen, Parker and Nando De Colo, so who knows if he would want to stay to try to win an NBA title with them. In addition, there is the thought of starting over with another team, when he has great chemistry with San Antonio now that he had a full season under his belt.   Of course anything can happen. This is the NBA after all.   This past season Diaw averaged 5.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, shot 53 percent from the field and 38 percent from behind the three-point line. In the postseason, he averaged 4.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, shot 44 percent from the field and 38 percent from long-range.   What do you think Spurs fans? Should the Spurs keep Diaw beyond next season or not?
