Spencer Dinwiddie tried to buy Wizards’ jersey patch ad, but league rejected idea

Michael Smith tells Michael Holley that Ben Simmons rebuffing his teammates requests to talk things over shouldn't be shocking after what transpired after the season.

This offseason, when the Wizards’ jersey patch advertising deal with Geico expired, they had a new suitor step right up:

Spencer Dinwiddie.

The same player Washington signed to a three-year, $62 million contract this offseason. Dinwiddie wanted to promote his Calaxy App, but the league shot the deal down, according to Dinwiddie himself. Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington had the Tweet.

Dinwiddie is creative, he wanted to use his contract as an investment vehicle, but the NBA shot that down. Instead, he has a $1 bonus on this contract if the Wizards win the championship (that is officially listed as an “unlikely” incentive, which might be putting it kindly).

The Wizards are still looking for their patch sponsor for this season.
