I'm as big a Splitter hater as they come, but if they didn't pay him he would have left, and the Spurs would have a center who is even worse. Diaw can play center in spurts, but he can't be the permanent starting center. Like others have said, free agents just don't want to come to San Antonio. So we're stuck with Splitter. Someone mentioned Rasho. Rasho had a mid range jumper, which would really hurt OKC right about now.
