After being traded in a multi-player deal with his former team, the Phoenix Suns on December 10, 2008, he made his debut with the Bobcats on Saturday, December 13. He played for Pau Orthez, France's top league team, before joining the NBA.
His NBA career averages are 8.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game.
Quin Snyder said he'd play the matchups until Derrick Favors (knee) can return, so the PF position is likely to be fluid.
With Derrick Favors (knee) on the sidelines, Utah has been moving Diaw and Joe Johnson in and out of the starting five based on the matchup, but Diaw's unimpressive numbers haven't changed based on how he enters the game. Diaw made the start with Derrick Favors (knee) on the shelf, but he did very little with the opportunity.
If he's on your fantasy team, you're probably losing.
"I felt good in preseason and then when I got injured I took a few steps back, so I'm trying to get back to where I was," Diaw said.
The Jazz were blown out 33-17 in the second quarter tonight and the game turned into a bit of a garbage-time special. Diaw's minutes have gone up in five straight games, so he's suddenly on the radar again in very deep leagues.
