Source: Boris Diaw expected to be waived by Jazz

Veteran forward/center Boris Diaw will not return to the Utah Jazz next season, a source told ESPN.

The source said that Diaw is expected to be waived before the July 15 deadline for his $7.5 million salary to become guaranteed, though the Jazz could use his instantly expiring contract in a trade to help salaries match.
