Veteran forward Boris Diaw announcement his retirement on Thursday after 14 NBA seasons.
Diaw made his announcement on Twitter, which included a link to a French-speaking video also featuring former San Antonio Spurs teammate Tony Parker and former NBA player Ronny Turiaf.
“This is it... It was a good run,” the French-born Diaw said.
Diaw averaged 8.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 1,064 NBA games with the Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns, the then-Charlotte Bobcats, San Antonio and the Utah Jazz.
He averaged a career-best 13.3 points for the Suns during the 2005-06 season. He was named the league’s Most Improved Player following that season.
Diaw was a key reserve for San Antonio later in his career. He was a member of the Spurs when they defeated the Miami Heat in the 2014 NBA Finals.
Diaw didn’t play in the NBA last season. He played for Levallois Metropolitans, a pro team in France.
