Spencer Dinwiddie Goes On Twitter To Deny Knicks Slander


Spencer Dinwiddie was the subject of many a rumor during the free agent process. The historic five-team trade that landed him in Washington was preceded by a spate of rumors that had him demanding $125 million to stay in Brooklyn, wanting to go home to play for the Lakers or Clippers, or any other number of things. 

But one rumor that surfaced is one that Dinwiddie felt compelled to put the kibosh on himself, straight out:

A New York Post report said that Dinwiddie, according to a source, "didn’t find the Knicks an appealing fit," but didn't elaborate further. Dinwiddie took to Twitter with his reply, "Why y'all still writing this stuff about me? I never said that. I'm just happy to be on the Washington Wizards."

And happy he is, stating his excitement to be looked to as a leader, along with Bradley Beal, on the young Wizards. "There’s no reason why we can’t be Batman and Superman and go crazy," Dinwiddie told Fred Katz of The Athletic. 

He even got the Wiz to include "the most unique bonus" in his contract, which pays him $1 (yes, ONE dollar) if the Wizards win the championship. 

Dinwiddie missed almost the entire past season with a partially torn ACL, but in the 2019-20 season, he averaged 20.6 PPG and 6.8 assists.
