Boris was drafted with the 21st pick in the 2003 draft by the Atlanta Hawks. He played with the Hawks for two seasons, and was traded to the Phoenix Suns for, ironically, current teammate Joe Johnson. During that season, he won the Most Improved Player award, averaging 13.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and a block per game.
In 2008, he was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats for Jared Dudley and Jason Richardson, along with Raja Bell and Sean Singletary. After playing four seasons with the Bobcats, he was waived by the team. The San Antonio Spurs picked him up afterwards, and he won his first and only NBA championship in Silver and Black. This past offseason, he was traded to the Utah Jazz, in order for the Spurs to sign All-Star Pau Gasol.
