In a bit of a surprising move earlier this week, Boris Diaw, one of the bigger names remaining in the free-agent pool, signed with the French side Paris-Levallois instead of staying in the NBA.  The 35-year-old Diaw, who is from France, recently explained in a video why he decided to return home. (Diaw is speaking in French, but the video has English subtitles if you want to follow along.)

Diaw’s explanation: “I found it very motivating to take part in a project such as this one within a French basketball club,” said Diaw. “This decision wasn’t about the money, it was about joining a club that could benefit from my presence, where I could help guide and teach the young players.”
