The Spurs have emerged as the frontrunners to sign Boris Diaw once he passes through waivers, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Diaw was bought out by the Bobcats today and is expected to clear waivers on Friday.
San Antonio is also waiting on visa issues to finalize its deal with Patrick Mills, but the team has two open roster spots, so it wouldn't need to make a move to add both Mills and Diaw. Both players would be eligible for the postseason if they were to sign with the Spurs.
Tim Griffin of the San Antonio Express-News wrote earlier today that the Spurs would be interested in signing Diaw. Fellow Frenchman Tony Parker spoke prior to the trade deadline about his desire to have the forward join him in San Antonio. Diaw also has a fan in Steve Nash, but Phoenix will likely pass on the former Sun, tweets Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
