Spencer Dinwiddie, PG/SG

2016-2017 Stats: 7.3 PPG, 3.1 APG, 44.4 FG%, 37.6 3FG%, 59 GP, 18 GS

Dinwiddie is back in Brooklyn, leading the bench squad as a true point guard. Not much has changed about his role with the Nets. He will look to spell Lin this year, as well as do his best to be a three-point shooting threat.

One big change that will likely happen is an increase in assists thanks to Brooklyn adding Crabbe. Caris LaVert will also join Dinwiddie on the bench unit. The two were very effective together during the Las Vegas Summer League.

While he will not be called upon to score as much, expect him to receive plenty of looks from downtown as teams try to swarm Crabbe and try to stop Kilpatrick and LaVert from slashing. His three-point field goal percentage may suffer due to the increase of looks.
