Point Guard - Spencer Dinwiddie

The point guard position should be the area of least concern, and the Spurs should not be looking to add another ball-handler to the roster. For argument’s sake, though, Dinwiddie is the best option. 

He would not be a starter for the Spurs but could be a contender for Sixth Man of the Year if he were to suit up. In his last full season, he averaged over 20 points for the first time in his career. He also has a pass-first mindset, dishing about six dimes per game over the course of his recent injury-free seasons. 

Considering he’s spent most of his career with the Nets as a sidekick to DeAngelo Russell or Kyrie Irving, it’s surprising that he’s managed to get a lot of shots off. He is by no means a lights-out shooter, but that doesn’t stop him from hoisting over 20 shots on any given night. Does he make them? Not usually, but the Spurs were dead last in total attempted three-pointers last season, so spreading the floor and removing the midrange dependency that has afflicted the team would be nice. 

Dinwiddie has been injury-prone throughout his career, which is a concern San Antonio should take seriously, but let’s be honest: the Spurs are highly unlikely to chase after him. He’ll sign a nice deal elsewhere and enjoy having a green light. San Antonio has White, Murray, Mills (probably), Walker IV, and Jones. Adding another guard is not a high priority for the team.
