Spencer Dinwiddie, PG/SG
Previous Team: Brooklyn Nets
Key Stats (2019): 20.6 PPG, 6.8 APG, 30.8% 3P, 29.2% USG
Nets fans will tell you Dinwiddie was integral for the Nets playoff appearances pre-Kevin Durant. (Actually most fans would) He was willing to be the primary volume scorer for a team with many young, developing talents but it’s hard to look at his efficiency and not feel concerned about how he fits into an analytics-driven league.
Dinwiddie can score from all over the floor, as a catch-and-shoot guard, and off the dribble. There isn’t a clear indication that he shoots more efficiently in a particular situation, but the fact that he remains a scoring threat despite his inefficiencies likely highlights how defenders feel about him.
Having extensive experience playing as a two-guard and as a secondary scorer, Dinwiddie likely fits better than Conley and DeRozan at this current juncture and likely is cheaper after he sat out most of last season with an ACL injury.
The market will exist for Dinwiddie because of his skill set, it will be up to his next team to make him a more efficient offensive player. The Mavericks probably see a perfect opportunity to get the most out of a player as they have done with Tim Hardaway Jr and Dwight Powell. However, Dinwiddie is already a better volume scorer than most everyone on the team.
