Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie admits his odds for Sixth Man of the Year aren’t high
While Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie appreciates Trey Kirby of the No Dunks podcast picking him to win Sixth Man of the Year this season, he knows he’s not the best pick to win the award.
Really appreciate it but via possession volume I’m probably not the best pick 😅. Lou will was #1 option last year and if klaw/PG miss a lot of games that’s probably a better pick

Last season for the Nets, Dinwiddie averaged 16.8 points, 4.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 68 games while shooting 44.2 percent from the field, 33.5 percent from beyond the arc and 80.6 percent from the free-throw line.
For the Clippers, Williams put up 20.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game. Like Dinwiddie says, Williams will most likely have the ball in his hands more often since he gets to run the second unit and Clippers superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will probably be load managed during the regular season.
The Nets signed All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving this summer. Dinwiddie and Irving will share the floor together at times during the season. As a result, Dinwiddie’s usage rate could be lower this year.
Dinwiddie is a team-first guy. As long as the Nets are winning games and competing for a championship, that’s all the 26-year-old cares about.
