Dinwiddie agreed in principle with the Wizards on a contract Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Per Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, Dinwiddie's deal is worth roughly $60 million over three years. After averaging a career-high 20.6 points per game over 64 contests in 2019-20, Dinwiddie was set to move into a smaller role for Brooklyn in 2020-21 with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant healthy after missing most of their inaugural seasons with the Nets due to injury. Dinwiddie ended up playing in just three games before suffering a partial ACL tear in his right knee that required season-ending surgery, then watched as the Nets added another star guard to the mix in James Harden. With the high-priced triumvirate of Harden, Irving and Durant back for 2021-22, Brooklyn was never expected to make a run at Dinwiddie in free agency, and the 28-year-old appears to have found an ideal landing spot with the Wizards, who are looking to replace starting point guard Russell Westbrook following his recent trade to the Lakers. Given the compensation he's receiving, Dinwiddie -- who was cleared for full basketball activities in June -- should immediately step in next to Bradley Beal on the top unit. Expect Dinwiddie to serve as the Wizards' No. 2 scoring option and top playmaker.
Dinwiddie (knee) has been fully cleared for all basketball activities, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The guard has recovered from a partial ACL tear in just over five months and will enter free agency this offseason. Over the past four seasons, he's averaged 16.2 points, 5.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 29.2 minutes per game. Next year will mark his age 28 season.
Dinwiddie (knee) plans to decline the $12.3 million player option on his 2021-22 contract and become an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Dinwiddie, who has been sidelined since late December due to an ACL tear, has a Monday deadline to make an official decision on the option. The 28-year-old guard could look for a roster spot elsewhere after appearing in just three games for Brooklyn during the 2020-21 season. Dinwiddie is expected to be close to full strength for the start of the 2021-22 season.
Dinwiddie (knee) underwent successful surgery Monday to repair his partially torn right ACL, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Dinwiddie will begin rehabbing next week, and while he'll miss the rest of the 2020-21 campaign, he should be at full strength for the start of next season. Since Dinwiddie went down, the Nets have turned to Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot as the fifth starter alongside Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris, Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan.
The Nets announced Monday that Dinwiddie (knee) will undergo season-ending surgery next week. Dinwiddie will require a procedure after he was diagnosed with a partial ACL tear in his right knee following his early departure in Sunday's loss to the Hornets. The 27-year-old is expected to be back to full health by the time NBA training camps open up ahead of the upcoming season, which could prompt Dinwiddie to decline his $12.3 million player option for 2021-22 and try his luck in free agency. As for the Nets, the loss of Dinwiddie will likely free up some more playing time for Landry Shamet, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Taurean Prince.
