Gorgui Dieng signed with the Spurs after a buyout when they were trying to win in 2021.

Now, as San Antonio rebuilds, Dieng is returning after spending last season with the Hawks.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Dieng, 32, doesn’t really fit the Spurs’ long-term plan.

But they clearly know him well and believe he’ll be a good presence in their locker room.

Dieng’s playing time will depend whether San Antonio keeps Jakob Poeltl (a prime trade candidate as the Spurs seek longer-term assets) and whether Zach Collins stays healthy.
