9. Spencer Dinwiddie

Dinwiddie has bounced around in recent years and is about to suit up for his fourth team in the last three seasons. The 6’5 guard was traded from Brooklyn to the Raptors at the deadline but was quickly bought out. He decided to join the Lakers in free agency but will hit the open market again this summer. Los Angeles will not have his Bird Rights meaning he will likely head to another franchise.

The Spurs desperately need a point guard, and Dinwiddie is comfortable starting or being the sixth man. He helped the Mavericks reach the conference finals in 2022 primarily acting as their first guard off the bench. Dinwiddie is a plus scorer and playmaker capable of getting buckets and running an offense.

The 30-year-old is in his tenth NBA season and has made the most of several situations. He has played his way off a few teams, so fit is crucial. Can he adapt to the Spurs way? Gregg Popovich may be able to get the most out of his defense, and Dinwiddie would help San Antonio win games.

Spencer Dinwiddie will be looking for a significant contract in free agency this summer. Are the Spurs willing to pay him as their starting point guard for the next three or four years? It seems unlikely, but the veteran guard could be the top available option.
