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. He averaged 16.0 points, 6.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 34 minutes. Wednesday night, he had 20 points in 37 minutes during a 112-106 loss to Iowa. Grand Rapids was 2-2 with him in the lineup.
