Spencer Dinwiddie RumorsAll NBA Players
Van Gundy also said it is very unlikely that the Pistons trade anyone currently on a rookie contract, which includes Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Spencer Dinwiddie, Andre Drummond and Kyle Singler. “Not going to happen,” Van Gundy said. “Not going to happen unless you get another guy back on his rookie deal. Basically, our philosophy coming in is first-round draft picks and rookie deals, you’re giving those up to either get similar back, or if there’s a star. If there’s one of the real stars in the league, then obviously, everything changes. But other than that, no, those guys on rookie deals are too important, and we really like our young guys. So no, that’s not going to happen.”

The Detroit Pistons have recalled rookie guard Spencer Dinwiddie from Grand Rapids of the NBA D-League. Dinwiddie played four games with the Drive after being sent down by the Pistons last week.

Dinwiddie isn’t concerning himself with any of that. He just wants to find the right fit. “I’m just praying for a good fit, whether that’s [pick No.] 15 or 35 or 45,” Dinwiddie said. “A team that believes in me and that knows [that] when I’m ready, I’ll be able to play.”
Among the NBA draft prospects the Los Angeles Clippers are inviting to their facility this week is former Colorado point guard Spencer Dinwiddie. The former Taft (Woodland Hills, California) star won’t be able to work out or do much beyond an interview or a physical — he’s just five months removed from surgery to repair his ACL — but the 6-foot-6 guard could be an intriguing late-first round pick for the Clippers, given that backup point guard Darren Collison is expected to decline his $1.9 million player option for next season to become a free agent.
After many complicated months, Spencer Dinwiddie has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NBA draft. Dinwiddie tore his anterior cruciate ligament while driving to the basket against Washington in mid-January and missed the rest of the season for the Buffs. The setback – and the promise of the next year as the Buffs are projected to be top-20 team – made the decision all the more difficult.
Colorado junior point guard Spencer Dinwiddie is leaning heavily toward leaving for the NBA, multiple sources told ESPN. The 6-foot-6 Dinwiddie, who tore the ACL in his left knee Jan. 12 against Washington, likely will forgo his final college season — unless the NBA evaluation he receives back includes information that says he does not have a chance to go in the first round of the NBA draft.
Colorado junior guard Spencer Dinwiddie said Thursday he still hasn’t made a decision regarding the NBA but hopes to “in a couple of weeks.” Dinwiddie, a first-team, all-Pac-12 Conference performance as a sophomore, suffered a season-ending knee injury on Jan. 12 and had to watch CU’s 77-48 loss to Pittsburgh from the bench.
