Former Jazz Boris Diaw to play in France for Paris-Levallois

Veteran forward Boris Diaw is returning to his native France and will play for Paris-Levallois.

Diaw's contract with the team includes outs for both NBA and European teams, his agent, Doug Neustadt, told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Diaw is coming off a disappointing 2016-17 season. He averaged 4.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.6 minutes per game as a part-time starter for the Utah Jazz, although he did provide valuable leadership and savvy as the Jazz ended a four-year postseason drought by winning 51 games and advancing to the second round of the playoffs.

Utah waived him this summer. His $7.5 million salary would have been guaranteed by a July 15 deadline.

A favorite among teammates, Diaw has career averages of 8.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists in stints with the Hawks, Suns, Hornets, Spurs and Jazz.
