Boris Diaw told Wendell Maxey of NBA.com that should the NBA lockout extend into the regular season, the French forward will play for a second-tier team in France that he co-owns. Diaw, the last man standing from the most recent era of Charlotte Bobcats basketball (Matt Carroll excepted), has one season remaining on his NBA contract.
Diaw is a part owner of JSA Bordeaux Basket and the team president, and his brother Martin plays for the club. It competes in France's Pro B, so you definitely won't be seeing Diaw's games televised or streamed in any form. Nicolas Batum has also agreed to play in France during the lockout, but he chose the more high-profile Pro A team SLUC Nancy.
Diaw, Batum and Spurs star Tony Parker -- who has also indicated interest in playing in France during the lockout -- are all playing for the French national team at EuroBasket 2011. France has advanced to the quarterfinals.
