Player Profile – Spencer Dinwiddie – The Mayor
With the Jeremy Lin saga showing no sign of ending, the Nets are getting desperate. It has now been 16 games since Lin suffered a hamstring injury, and Brooklyn is just 4-12 over that stretch. To make matters worse, we still don’t have an official timetable for his return. After waiving Greivis Vasquez and Yogi Ferrell, the Nets are left with a huge hole at the point guard position.
It’s no surprise, then, that Sean Marks decided to look at the free agent market. A couple of hours ago, it was announced that the Nets signed Spencer Dinwiddie to a partially guaranteed three-year contract. The 6-6 guard had some impressive showings for the Bulls’ D-League team this season. The Nets are probably hoping he can be a success story similar to the one of Sean Kilpatrick.
