Free agent guard Spencer Dinwiddie is expected to command between $15 million and $20 million per year in his next contract, according to the New York Post’s Brian Lewis.
“The most intrigue surrounds Dinwiddie, who has spoken of getting as much as five-years, $125 million and could be too expensive to keep,” Lewis wrote. “League personnel that spoke with The Post suggested he might get between $15 million to $20 million, so the best route for all parties could be a sign-and-trade.”
Last season, Dinwiddie appeared in just three games due to a torn ACL.
He hadn’t gotten off to a great start in the 2020-21 season, but he did average 20.6 points per game to go with 6.8 assists per night during the 2019-20 campaign.
The Nets would love to orchestrate a sign-and-trade with Dinwiddie in order to recoup some role players, but it’s unknown if Dinwiddie would be willing to cooperate with such a deal.
The 28-year-old is looking for a major payday after being a second-round pick back in the 2014 NBA Draft.
