Bulls To Waive Spencer Dinwiddie

The Bulls have parted ways with guard Spencer Dinwiddie, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports (via Twitter). Dinwiddie’s salary of $980,431 for 2016/17 was non-guaranteed, so Chicago won’t be on the hook for any salary as a result of the move. Provided he clears waivers, Dinwiddie will become an unrestricted free agent.

Dinwiddie completed his second NBA season with averages of 4.8 points, 1.8 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 13.3 minutes over 12 contests.  He was drafted by the Pistons with the No. 38 overall selection in the 2014 NBA Draft. Dinwiddie owns career averages of 4.4 points, 2.7 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 13.3 minutes in NBA 46 games.

Chicago had acquired the 23-year-old from Detroit in exchange for power forward Cameron Bairstow in June.

Bairstow, who will also be waived if Detroit signs Boban. Great trade!

Sixers need to jump all over this. He could be a really solid backup PG

Paxgar or Garpax, whatever they’re called, really have a handle on things. Getting younger Dunleavy for Wade, providingHoiburg with players who do NOT fit his system, and the above wonderful trade that makes you wonder how dumb these guys are.

Getting Wade is an upgrade no matter how you look at it. If Portis takes a step up, and Mirotic and McDermott start knocking down 3s, the Bulls could be a surpise playoff team.

If wishes were fishes we’d all eat nice dishes.

“Surprise playoff team” as in like a 6 seed? Yah, maybe. Surprise as in going deep in the playoffs? No chance.

Wade is 35 years old. If he’s considered an upgrade, GarPax still sucks
