For weeks, a segment of fans chanted "Extension, Extension" in reference to the Brooklyn Nets signing Spencer Dinwiddie to an extension as soon as he became eligible Dec. 8. On Friday, Dinwiddie signed a three-year extension before leading the Nets to another win. Now, Dinwiddie and the Nets seek their season-high fifth straight victory Sunday afternoon when they host the Atlanta Hawks.
There was no big celebration for Spencer Dinwiddie when he signed a contract extension with Brooklyn that guarantees a paycheck in an NBA where he once couldn't even hold a job. Outside of the satisfaction of knowing his parents can retire, Dinwiddie said nothing really changed. Other than that, basketball-wise we're not where we want to be, so we've got to continue to push and go forward,'' he said Friday.
BROOKLYN -- The Brooklyn Nets have signed guard Spencer Dinwiddie to a multi-year contract extension. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.
The Brooklyn Nets gave Spencer Dinwiddie a contract extension Thursday, a day after the best game of his career. The three-year extension will be worth about $34 million for the guard who was playing in the NBA G League before he signed with the Nets on Dec. 8, 2016. He has gone on to become one of their top players and scored a career-high 39 points, the most by any player off the bench in the NBA this season, in a victory at Philadelphia on Wednesday.
