Agent: Diaw reaches contract buyout with Bobcats



CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The agent for veteran forward Boris Diaw says his client has reached an agreement on a contract buyout with the Charlotte Bobcats that will allow him to sign with another team.

Doug Neustadt says his client is leaving Charlotte on good terms but that “losing was tough this year and he really wants to be able to participate on a playoff team.”

The Bobcats have won only seven games this season, worst in the NBA.

Diaw was in the final year of his contract and is owed about $2 million.

The 29-year-old Diaw had fallen out of favor with coach Paul Silas this season and barely played in the last three weeks, often listed as inactive.

He started 28 games this season and averaged 7.4 points.
