Currently, the Detroit Pistons have three point guards – Reggie Jackson, Steve Blake and Spencer Dinwiddie. However, Brandon Jennings is getting closer to returning from his torn Achilles. That means Dinwiddie will likely be sent to the NBA D-League to make room on the Pistons' roster.
The second-year guard is averaging 4.4 points and 1.4 assists per game over nine games this season. Dinwiddie would prefer not to be sent to Grand Rapids, the Pistons' affiliate, but would embrace it like a professional.
Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press has more from Dinwiddie and his possible move:
- "'It’s part of being a professional. Do I specifically, like, want to go to the D-League? Not really. I don’t think anybody does.' Dinwiddie, 22, has had several stints in Grand Rapids — including two games this season. He was part of the Pistons’ playing rotation briefly this season and has appeared in only nine games.' …'At the end of the day, you got to do what you’re told and use everything as room for improvement and a learning experience, so wherever they send me, wherever I have to go, it’s part of the process, and you just have to be professional down there,' Dinwiddie said."
