NY Knicks: Should Spencer Dinwiddie’s injury deter them?

“New York Knicks pay millions of dollars to a player who isn’t a superstar and is coming off of a season-ending injury” doesn’t have the greatest ring to it.

There have already been videos surfacing around Dinwiddie’s recovery, although the Nets have ruled out his return for the NBA playoffs.

With Spencer Dinwiddie, his contract will surely be at least 3 years. There is going to be one of the 30 NBA teams who are ready to take the risk for the 28-year-old guard. He’s not going to be cheap.

If I’m guessing what Dinwiddie’s next contract would look like, I would have to imagine he gets anywhere from 16-22 million per year. Again, this is a player who was a fringe All-Star just a season ago and was ready to become a complementary piece next to a healthy Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.

The Knicks have to ask themselves if they are going to be ready to spend on a player of Dinwiddie’s caliber. He’s only missed a handful of games for Brooklyn prior to this season.

Even though NY is eager to upgrade their roster, they might want to save that money for another premier point guard prospect.

Do the pros outweigh the cons? Are the NY Knicks and Spencer Dinwiddie a good fit?
