Wizards agree to a sign-and-trade for Dinwiddie (0:52)

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Wizards have agreed to a sign-and-trade with the Nets to acquire Spencer Dinwiddie. (0:52)

It took a couple days, but the Washington Wizards worked out a complex sign-and-trade deal to land Spencer Dinwiddie as a free agent after pitching him on joining the organization Monday.

Because the Wizards didn't have the cap space necessary to sign Dinwiddie, they had to expand the deal struck on draft night with the Los Angeles Lakers involving Russell Westbrook to include Brooklyn as well as two other teams: the Indiana Pacers, with whom the Wizards also traded on draft night, and the San Antonio Spurs.

Because we've already graded the Westbrook trade and Washington's deal with Indiana, we'll focus here on the value for the three teams in the new part of the trade.


The deal

Wizards get: Spencer Dinwiddie

Spurs get: Chandler Hutchison, 2022 second-round pick

Nets get: 2024 second-round pick, 2025 second-round pick swap (from Wizards)
