Rumors: Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie’s contract offers revealed
Coming off a missed season with a torn ACL, the market for Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie was relatively foggy. Most would like to see how his rehab is coming along and if there have been any hiccups along the way.
Now, according to Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News, potential offers are starting to come to the light for Dinwiddie that could pull him away from the Nets.
Elsewhere likely doesn’t carry the same championship odds as he’d find in Brooklyn, but Dinwiddie would be a starter playing a significant role on most other teams. He has already received interest from teams offering three-year deals with an average annual value of $22 million, according to a source.
An average of $22 million per year on a multiyear deal isn’t too shabby for Dinwiddie. In the piece, Winfield dove into it from the Nets’ perspective.
The Nets’ issue is the franchise already committed $80 million to its starting backcourt — then again, it’s not an issue if the luxury tax isn’t an issue, and money is not an issue for Tsai, as evidenced by his purchase of a $157 million condo on Manhattan’s “Billionaire’s Row.” If Marks and Tsai believe Dinwiddie is integral to the team’s odds at winning a championship, they will pay him the price that makes him happy.
Expect Dinwiddie’s name to continue to be a popular one that’s brought up as free agency begins. Tons of teams have had rumored interest in the guard and if the Nets don’t open up their checkbook, he will likely head elsewhere and cash in.
