Reports: Spurs bring back big man Gorgui Dieng

Gorgui Dieng is headed back to the San Antonio Spurs, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.

Dieng, 32, spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks and has also played for the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves in addition to a brief stint with the Spurs during the 2020-21 season.

Dieng, entering his 10th season, averaged 3.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 8.4 minutes in 44 games (three starts) with the Hawks last season.

He arrives as the Spurs shipped away second-year center Jock Landale in the swap with the Hawks that included All-Star Dejounte Murray.

A first-round draft pick in 2013, Dieng remained with Minnesota until February 2020 and owns career averages of 7.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 597 games (208 starts).
