Spencer Dinwiddie

Another former Maverick whose career started going downhill once he left Dallas is Spencer Dinwiddie. After playing a major role in the 2022 playoffs for the Mavericks, averaging 14.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 3.6 assists on 41.7% shooting from three in 18 games, Dinwiddie failed to find that form again.

The Mavs traded Dinwiddie to the Nets in the Kyrie Irving trade. The 31-year-old was then traded to the Raptors but ended up with the Los Angeles Lakers to finish out the 2023-24 season. Now, he is hitting free agency and it's not clear where he will end up.

The Dallas Mavericks should be interested in bringing back the combo guard. Outside of Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic, Dallas needs one more playmaker and pick-and-roll operator. They are hoping for Jaden Hardy to become that player but he hasn't proven that he can be that at the highest levels just yet.

If Dallas can sign Dinwiddie to a minimum contract, he would be Hardy insurance as a reliable bench option. He can shoot the three, create his own shot, find open teammates, and defend credibly on the other end. Dinwiddie has rubbed some the wrong way throughout his career, possibly limiting his upside. However, he is a good fit with the Mavericks and GM Nico Harrison should seriously take a look at the former Colorado product.
