Spencer Dinwiddie is eligible for a contract extension on December 8th with the Brooklyn Nets. According to Michael Scotto of The Athletic, Dinwiddie is interested in signing an extension with the team if the team is willing to offer it to him.
“I would love to have an extension. I would love to be here for a long time,” Dinwiddie said. “If I don’t get an extension, then I’ll be looking forward to unrestricted free agency and going through the season and trying to win as many games as possible.”

In an interview with WFUV, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says the Nets would like to keep Spencer Dinwiddie long-term at their price. The most the Brooklyn Nets can offer Dinwiddie is a 4 year, $48 million dollar contract. If the Nets don’t sign him by June 30th, he’ll become an unrestricted free-agent.
The Nets could possibly have an issue with keeping both him and their other guard D’Angelo Russell without losing their flexibility going into the off-season and could possibly put them over the luxury tax as well. With both being very valuable guards that teams like Magic and Suns could use, it’ll be interesting to see what the Nets do about their situation.
Spencer Dinwiddie has become one of the more valuable guards in the league since his tenure with the Brooklyn Nets.
