Dinwiddie, of course, was traded to Dallas near this year’s NBA trade deadline. While there was a bit of a rough start to his tenure with the Mavs, there don’t seem to be any issues now. The 29-year-old veteran has been a rock of late, most recently complementing the star power of Luka Doncic as Dallas upset the heavily-favored Suns on their floor.
One dollar. As in… 20 nickels. 10 dimes. 100 pennies.
Sources: Spencer Dinwiddie’s three-year, $62 million contract with the Wizards has several bonuses each season, @hoopshype has learned.
$1.5 million if he plays 50+ games
$571K if team makes ECF
$400K if team makes NBA Finals
$100K if team makes 2nd round
$1 if team wins title

Your reminder that Spencer Dinwiddie has a $1 bonus in his contract if the Mavericks win the title. Not $1 million — just one single dollar. He joked shortly after he signed the contract, originally with the Wizards, that he wants it paid out in pennies.

Yes, that’s not a misprint.
It’s not clear whether Dinwiddie is serious about the dollar bonus for a title or if this was something he merely accepted while still negotiating with the Wizards last off-season. Because, you know, as usual, the Wizards aren’t winning any games in June or May for a while.
But hey: Even with inflation, a dollar probably still gets you a decent candy bar! A ring and a crunchy Twix. What a potential combo for Dinwiddie and the Mavs.
