Dinwiddie, Kuzma go head-to-head in offseason runs

Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyle Kuzma may be teammates now, but that didn't keep two of the Wizards' offseason additions from going at each other in an offseason pick-up game. 

During some runs hosted by NBA trainer Olin Simplis, Dinwiddie appeared to get the better of Kuzma on a number of possessions, hitting shots from all over and setting up teammates for easy dunks.

Dinwiddie has been a bonafide bucket-getter in the NBA for a number of years, but it's the passing that'll be key in his first year with the Wizards. 

Washington signed him to a three-year, $62 million contract to be the lead ball handler next to Bradley Beal and he'll be tasked with setting up one of the league's most productive scorers. His last full season in the NBA is a good indicator of what he can do as a lead guard, where he averaged roughly 20 points and seven assists playing most of the season without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. 

Of course, it'll be vital for Dinwiddie to threaten defenses with his own scoring acumen, but if Washington's going to be the best version of itself, Dinwiddie will have to make plays for others. 

Dinwiddie only played in three games last season before tearing his ACL.
