Spencer Dinwiddie Will Set Himself Apart From Brooklyn Nets’ Glut of Guards

Spencer Dinwiddie is one of Sean Marks’ wisest additions. On a team that boasts eight guards, it will be interesting to see what Dinwiddie’s role will be next season for the Brooklyn Nets.

Before beginning his NBA journey, Spencer Dinwiddie had an illustrious high school and college career. His tall, thin frame, combined with elite playmaking skills, allowed him to dominate smaller competition. He never quite put up eye-popping stats, but was always unanimously thought of as a leader on and off the court.

He played high school ball in southern California alongside future second-round pick DeAndre Daniels. Dinwiddie was not thought of as a pro prospect in high school and only garnered a few scholarship offers from major conference schools as a result. He ultimately decided to attend the University of Colorado over his future teammate’s alma mater, Harvard University.
