Nets Lock Up Dinwiddie

Spencer Dinwiddie, Brooklyn Nets Agree to Three year Extension

After pouring in a career-high 39 points in a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, the Brooklyn Nets decided to open up their check book for Spencer Dinwiddie.

On Thursday, the team has announced that they have locked up the point guard for the next three years. The deal is worth $34 million over three years, with the final year being a player option. This will be a definite raise for Dinwiddie who is making just $1.7 million this season. He is coming off a season in which he finished third for Most Improved Player and made a case for the Sixth Man of the Year award.

“The journey is just beginning,” Dinwiddie wrote on Twitter. “I’m thankful that [the Brooklyn Nets] believe in me enough to give me a home.”

Dinwiddie has been averaging 16.9 points per game on the season.

“It’s just so evident, you can’t take him out and he’s playing great basketball,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said after Wednesday’s win. “Obviously, he’s our engine right now, especially in the second half. All the work he’s done, he’s come a long way. He deserves it.”

Originally a second round pick in 2014, Dinwiddie signed with the Nets in 2016 after suiting up in the G League.
