Boris Diaw says he’s staying in San Antonio.
The versatile forward tweeted Sunday evening that he is staying in San Antonio "for a few more years." Diaw did not reveal the specifics of his new contract with the Spurs, but Yahoo! Sports first reported that it is a three-year deal worth $22 million.
Diaw was an invaluable contributor to the Spurs’ championship run last season. He averaged 9.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists last season and gave the Spurs a strong defender as well.
The Spurs have also been great for Diaw, who revived his career after a disappointing stint in Charlotte.
The 32-year-old became a free agent this summer and cannot officially sign the new contract until July 10.

Clippers sale on hold as trial begins
With the potentially record-breaking $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers hanging in the balance, a trial beginning Monday will focus on whether Donald Sterling’s estranged wife had the authority under terms of a family trust to unilaterally negotiate the deal.
Shelly Sterling struck a deal to sell the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer after Donald Sterling’s racist remarks to a girlfriend were publicized and the NBA moved to oust him as team owner.
In order to do so, she had two doctors examine her 80-year-old husband and they declared him mentally incapacitated and unable to act as an administrator of The Sterling Family Trust, which owns the Clippers.
The terms of the trust say incapacitation can be determined by two licensed doctors without ties to the family who are specialists in their field. A trustee must cooperate with such exams.
The judge must find that Shelly Sterling acted in accordance with the trust and that the deal still applies for the sale to proceed.
