The consensus across the league is that Diaw will be back with the Spurs, who value his versatility and playmaking. In his exit interview a few days after the NBA Finals, Diaw expressed a preference to return to play for Popovich, a coach who has come to accept his idiosyncrasies, and alongside his childhood friend, Tony Parker.

Here, Diaw’s ill-fated tenure in Charlotte still looms large. In March of 2012, Diaw more or less forced his way off a bad Bobcats team — via contract buyout — amid a philosophical clash with coach Paul Silas. Diaw signed a few days later to play for the Spurs. Because of that episode, one league executive surmises, any other team that pursues Diaw this month will do so exercising utmost caution. Any big-money offer will come with a “buyer beware” attached. “People are nervous about Diaw,” the exec said. San Antonio Express-News

Willing to wait for Patty Mills to completely recover from surgery to repair a right shoulder injury, the Spurs on Wednesday agreed to terms on a three-year contract with their valuable backup point guard. One of the heroes of the Spurs' NBA Finals triumph over the Miami Heat, Mills needs an operation to correct a torn rotator cuff. San Antonio Express-News

Terms of the deal remain unknown, but two teams that had expressed interest in negotiating with Mills before his injury was disclosed believe it will begin with a salary next season that's in the $3 million-plus range. A player personnel executive with an Eastern Conference team said his team had prepared a multiyear offer for Mills — but dropped its pursuit after learning of his injury. San Antonio Express-News



The big stars from the Gregg Popovich years crowd the top of the list.
