It’s reportedly a one-year deal.

Dieng, 6-10/250, spent the 2021-22 season with the Atlanta Hawks, averaging 3.5 points and 2.8 rebounds in 8.4 minutes in 44 games while shooting 47.3% from the field. He is making his second stint in San Antonio after appearing in 16 games for the Spurs in 2020-21, averaging 5.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 11.3 minutes.

Per the San Antonio Express News, “the move re-kindled speculation that the Spurs could be willing to trade starting center Jakob Poeltl as it continues to rebuild after missing the playoffs the last three seasons. The Spurs also have forward/center Zach Collins on their roster.”

A 10-year NBA veteran, Dieng holds career averages of 7.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 20.5 minutes in 597 total games played. Selected in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft (21st overall) by the Utah Jazz, he was dealt to the Timberwolves on draft night and spent his first six-plus seasons with Minnesota.

A native of Senegal, Dieng won the 2013 NCAA Championship in his final season as a junior at the University of Louisville.

Dieng will wear No. 41 for the Silver and Black.
