DETROIT (WXYZ) - According to a report from Marc Stein of ESPN, the Pistons have signed second round draft pick Spencer Dinwiddie to a three-year deal. The guard was taken with the 38th pick in this year's NBA Draft out of the University of Colorado.
Dinwiddie injured his knee during the college season and had his left ACL surgically repaired in January, but the Pistons saw something in the 6'6" player they liked and are willing to wait for.
The combo guard was having a fine season before the injury averaging almost 15 points per game and shooting 41.3 percent from the three point line.
Dinwiddie missed the summer league season and will probably not be ready when the Pistons convene for training camp. There is hope he will be able to join the team sometime during the season after completing his rehab work on the damaged knee. Reports state his rehab has gone well but it usually takes more than six months to recover fully from that type of injury. The Pistons evidently are willing to wait.
