Former Pistons and Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie has reportedly signed a new contract with the Washington Wizards. The details of the new deal are as of yet unknown, but Dinwiddie will forgo another year of Harden, Durant and Irving in Brooklyn.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday morning.

Dinwiddie has been a member of the Nets for five seasons, first signing in 2016. He made a name for himself starting in favor of the injured Irving, averaging 20.6 points and 6.8 assists per game in 64 games (49 starts).
He, unfortunately, played only three games during the 2020-2021 season after injuring his knee. The injury was revealed to be a partial ACL tear, which kept him off the court for the entirety of the season (save those three games).
Now, Dinwiddie will join the new-look Wizards which lost Russell Westbrook, but added Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope from the Lakers, among other free agent acquisitions.
