Spencer Dinwiddie heads to Wizards for signing and swap deal: sources
Spencer Dinwiddie is heading to Washington Wizards for a three-year, $ 62 million contract as part of a signing-and-trade deal with the Nets, sources say Athleticism.
The deal is part of a larger five-team exchange that includes the blockbuster that sent Russell Westbrook to the Lakers from Washington. The other teams involved are the Indiana Pacers and the San Antonio Spurs. The following is a breakdown of what each team will receive (which we know so far):
- Wizards: Dinwiddie, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell, Kyle Kuzma, Aaron Holiday, Pick # 31 Isaiah Todd
- Nets: second round pick, trade second round pick, $ 11.5 million trade exception
- Spurs: Chandler Hutchison, 2022 Wizards second-round pick
- Lakers: Westbrook
- Pacers: No.22 chooses Isaiah Jackson
Dinwiddie only appeared in three games for the Brooklyn Nets last season before partially tearing his ACL in December. The Nets then reached the semifinals of the Eastern Conference where they lost to the Milwaukee Bucks in seven games.
The playmaker played in Brooklyn for five seasons, and before that, he played for the Detroit Pistons for two seasons. With the Nets, he averaged 14.3 points, 5.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game.
Although the Wizards have lost the All-Star Westbrook 10 times, they will pair Dinwiddie with another All-Star in Bradley Beal.
