Wizards’ Spencer Dinwiddie fires back at fake news he snubbed Knicks

Wizards, Spencer Dinwiddie, Knicks

New Washington Wizards guard Spencer Dinwiddie is not happy with the recent rumor claiming he snubbed the New York Knicks in free agency.

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, Dinwiddie didn’t join the Knicks despite the team’s interest because he didn’t find them to be an “appealing fit”–something that the veteran guard has vehemently denied. On Twitter, the 28-year-old basically said it’s fake news.

The Knicks had some interest in Spencer Dinwiddie heading to free agency, especially since they were in need of guard depth before they were able to snag Kemba Walker from the buyout market. However, there wasn’t really much traction on that end.

Dinwiddie eventually inked a three-year, $62 million deal with the Wizards to pair up with Bradley Beal and headline a revamped lineup that now features Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Montrezl Harrell.

As for the Knicks, they were able to fill their roster needs despite missing on Dinwiddie. Aside from Kemba, they also signed Evan Fournier and retained the services of Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks. They also added Dwayne Bacon in a bid to bolster their wings.

Of course, the ‘Bockers also ensured that Julius Randle is not going anywhere with a four-year, $117 million deal.

While Dinwiddie is certainly happy with the Wizards, it’s safe to say the Knicks are also satisfied with their offseason haul.
