SAN ANTONIO -- Looking to clear cap space to accommodate new addition Pau Gasol's two-year contract worth more than $30 million, the San Antonio Spurs will move veteran Boris Diaw in a trade with the Utah Jazz, a source confirmed to The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears.
The Spurs and Jazz have verbally agreed to the trade, as it can't be made official until July 7.
The Vertical first reported the move.
A key contributor to the Spurs since coming to San Antonio in 2012, Diaw, 34, was owed $7 million for the 2016-17 season, which made moving him necessary to accommodate for the acquisition of Gasol. Complete terms of the trade weren't immediately known.
In San Antonio, Diaw showcased uncanny passing skills and defensive versatility, not to mention the ability to guard out on the perimeter.
Diaw averaged 18.2 minutes over 76 games during the 2015-16 season, and he contributed 6.4 points per game while shooting 52.7 percent from the field.
A 13-year veteran, Diaw has averaged 8.9 points on 49.6 percent shooting for his career.
