Source: Diaw to Jazz; Spurs Clear Space for Gasol


The San Antonio Spurs have traded forward Boris Diaw to the Utah Jazz, clearing the way for the signing of free agent Pau Gasol, league sources told The Vertical.

The Jazz will send San Antonio the rights to guard Olivier Hanlan, whom Utah drafted in the second-round of the 2015 NBA draft.

The $7 million salary in the final year of Diaw’s contract allows the Spurs the salary cap space to sign Gasol to a two-year, $30 million-plus deal agreed upon on Monday.
