Pistons Interested In Spencer Dinwiddie

Quote

 

February 27th 2021 at 10:54am CST by Mark Suleymanov
With the NBA trade deadline approaching, the Pistons are one of several teams interested in Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie, according to SNY’s Ian Begley.

Dinwiddie, 27, is currently sidelined with a partially torn ACL, having undergone ACL reconstruction surgery in early January. There was some optimism that Dinwiddie may be able to return later this season, but the Nets appear prepared to finish the 2020/21 campaign without him.

The Nets are expected to be active on the buyout market and seek additional upgrades to the roster. Dinwiddie could hit free agency this upcoming offseason given his $12.3MM player option for the 2021/22 campaign.

While Dinwiddie struggled in three games before his injury this season, he averaged 20.8 PPG and 6.8 APG for the Nets in 64 games last season. Therefore, he could be a valuable piece to a team in the future despite the nature of his injury.

As Begley notes in his report, if Dinwiddie were to be traded, the team that acquires him would likely want to sign him beyond this season. The Pistons project to have cap room this summer, so Dinwiddie’s Bird rights wouldn’t necessarily be as valuable to them as they would be to some other clubs.

While it is a concern that this is Dinwiddie’s second ACL tear, players in recent years have generally made full recoveries from the injury and have been productive upon their return.

 

Well?

I don’t think we have enough Bitcoin under the luxury tax to sign him.  

I don't know.  I'm no expert on the cap.  I thought I read that "if Dinwiddie were to be traded, the team that acquires him would likely want to sign him beyond this season. The Pistons project to have cap room this summer, so Dinwiddie’s Bird rights wouldn’t necessarily be as valuable to them as they would be to some other clubs."  I took that as good to go.

A year or two ago, I would have given an adamant yes.

But how is this team constructed going forward?

First, Dinwiddie is going to cost a pretty penny to re-sign. $10-12M/ year? Plus/minus?

Second, you have Hayes and Lee, both rookies, who will command/ deserve a fair share of minutes. Smith, who looks like he could be re-signed at maybe half the cost of Dinwiddie? On a 2-3 year contract? Just guessing... And we still have Delon Wright, at least for this year and next year, unless he's traded. At this point, it's looking like Wright will be pushed over to SG to keep minutes open for the other 3, although he could still slide back to PG if needed...

So where are we playing Dinwiddie? At SG? Is he taking minutes from Delon Wright or Hayes or Lee or Smith at PG? From Josh Jackson, Svi, or Wright at SG?

Not to mention... If we're in the top 5 Draft this year we're most likely picking up a swing player for SG/SF.

It's just looking seriously difficult to sign Dinwiddie on a Cost/ Position/ Playing Time Benefit basis. So I'd have to say no.

Last Year, I would have said definitely yes. But...

... this team has changed.

It all depends upon the entirety of the deal as well as other deals.  If some of the pieces that you mentioned get moved in deals (this one or other deals), the logjam could be alleviated.  Clearly Weaver isn’t adverse to making deals.

And if they happen to choose Mobley in the draft?  That doesn’t create a perimeter logjam.

Agree with you that the team has changed.  It’s likely to keep changing.

I would say Wright HAS to be moved in order to take on Dinwiddie, both financially and positionally... And that means Dinwiddie is more SG and a little bit of PG for the Pistons...

Casey probably against that move as someone pointed out he loves Wright...

Weaver might be willing to do that move though based on getting the right return for a Wright trade... so we'll see what happens on that end.
