It was pretty much a known thing a few weeks ago, but it's official now: Boris Diaw will play in France if the lockout cuts into the regular season, according to Catch and Shoot.
Diaw is set to make his first appearance with JSA Bordeuax on Oct. 7. I'm sure the negotiation was real tough as Diaw was dealing with himself, as he's JSA Bordeaux's team president.
Diaw's got an NBA out clause and will return to the NBA once play resumes. When he's not fat and out of shape, Diaw's a versatile power forward that can add quality minutes. Last season, he started all 82 games for the Bobcats and had a relatively productive season.
So I'd imagine that Boris Diaw is pretty excited about signing Boris Diaw to his team. Though I wonder how disappointed Boris Diaw will be if Boris Diaw has to return to the NBA because the lockout ends.
