Referring to Spencer Dinwiddie, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said the Nets, “have to find minutes for him. As well as he is developing, I’m really excited about him. I think he’s going to have a really good year. I felt it all summer.”
The Nets acquired Dinwiddie midseason and he played 59 games for them last year, starting 18. He averaged 7.3 points, 3.1 assists and 2.8 rebounds 22.6 minutes and provided solid minutes for them during Jeremy Lin’s absence. Atkinson also said a 10-man rotation is ideal but their depth may push that to 11. Even if he is a part of the rotation, Dinwiddie does not project to get a lot of use as he will be competing with Isaiah Whitehead for backup point guard minutes.
