AP Source: Spurs trade Boris Diaw to Jazz
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A person with knowledge of the deal says the San Antonio Spurs have traded Boris Diaw to the Utah Jazz for point guard Olivier Hanlan.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because league deals do not become official until Thursday. TheVertical.com first reported the deal.
The 33-year-old Diaw, a key member of the Spurs' 2014 championship team, averaged 6.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists last season.
Diaw tweeted, ''Spurs' fans, thanks for all your messages. Great years here and a ring! Leaving but San Antonio will always be a special place to me.'' He added in another tweet, ''Hey (at)utahjazz and (at)rudygobert27 ! I'm looking forward seeing you!''
Hanlan was a 2015 second-round pick by the Jazz. He played in Lithuania last season.
