The Spurs have signed Boris Diaw, the team announced today. Adrian Wojnarowksi of Yahoo! Sports first reported that Diaw and the Spurs had reached an agreement on a contract for the remainder of the season.

Diaw was bought out by the Bobcats on Wednesday, allowing him to sign with San Antonio in time to be eligible for the postseason. The Spurs will sign Diaw after he clears waivers, allowing them to pay him a pro-rated portion of the minimum salary while the Bobcats foot the rest of his bill. The 6'8" forward has a cap figure of $9MM this season.

In 37 games with Charlotte, Diaw averaged 7.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists in 27.5 minutes per game. The 29-year-old had some issues with his fitness and with coach Paul Silas, but remains relatively productive. He'll take San Antonio's last open roster spot.
