Pistons trade Spencer Dinwiddie to Bulls for Cameron Bairstow
The Bulls have one point guard under contract for next season: Derrick Rose.
Whether or not they trade him, they still need depth at the position. So, they’ll give Spencer Dinwiddie a shot.
Dinwiddie and Bairstow both have unguaranteed salaries for next season. Dinwiddie’s partially guarantees Nov. 1, and Bairstow’s fully guarantees July 25. There’s a decent chance neither former second-rounder makes a regular-season roster.
Dinwiddie has made decent strides in everything but shooting, and his lack of a steady jumper cripples his game. He shot better in college before an ACL injury. If he re-finds his touch, he could be OK.
Bairstow has some raw skills as a stretch big, but his lack of NBA strength and athleticism holds him back.
