The Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets agreed to terms on a sign-and-trade deal that will send Spencer Dinwiddie to Washington.
He will immediately slide in as the team’s starting point guard, taking over for Russell Westbrook, who the Wizards are sending to the Lakers in the same trade that will bring Dinwiddie to D.C.
The deal, which will see Dinwiddie receive a three-year contract worth close to $60 million from the Wizards, will send two second-round picks — the more favorable of the Memphis Grizzlies’ and Washington’s second-round picks in 2024, and of the Golden State Warriors’ and Wizards’ in 2025 — to the Nets, who will also receive an $11.5 million trade exception as part of the deal.
Washington will also send forward Chandler Hutchison to the San Antonio Spurs, along with a 2022 second-round pick, allowing the Wizards to remain out of the luxury tax for next season.
Here are the complete details of the reported deal:
• Wizards receive: Spencer Dinwiddie, Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell, Aaron Holiday, Isaiah Todd (31st overall pick)
• Lakers receive: Russell Westbrook
• Nets receive: 2024 second round pick, 2025 pick swap with Wizards
• Spurs receive: Chandler Hutchison, future second round pick
• Pacers receive: Isaiah Jackson (22nd overall pick)
Dinwiddie played only three games last season after suffering partially torn ACL. During the 2019-20 season, he averaged career-highs for points (20.6) and assists (6.8).
