As we continue the runup to training camp, now just six days away, I’ve sicced The Doppelgänger Machine on Wizards newcomers Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Today: guard Spencer Dinwiddie.
A little ballyhooed second round draft pick, Dinwiddie played poorly in scant minutes during his first two years with the Detroit Pistons. He became a bona fide NBA player when he moved on to Brooklyn.
At 6-5, Dinwiddie is big, aggressive and strong. He attacks off the dribble and does a good job drawing fouls. Interestingly, he’s been productive with low, average and high usage rates.
Overall, he’s been basically average to a little better the past several seasons. Here’s his PPA season-by-season (PPA is my overall production metric. In PPA, 100 is average, higher is better, and 45 is replacement level).
