Former Hawks center Gorgui Dieng signs with Spurs

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Tuesday morning that Gorgui Dieng agreed to a one-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

Travis Schlenk has made significant changes to the roster after a disappointing season, trading away two players while three have left in free agency. Dieng had a pretty quiet season, but to be fair, Nate McMillan never gave him serious minutes outside of when Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu were out of the lineup.

The 32-year-old center is coming off the least productive season of his career, in which he averaged 3.5 points and 2.8 rebounds in 8.4 minutes per game. Despite the lack of production, Dieng is a valuable veteran and a positive presence in the locker room.
