The high-scoring guard has an offer NBA fan bases can’t refuse.

Portland Trail Blazers fans can secure high-scoring point guard Spencer Dinwiddie for their team if they want it badly enough. Dinwiddie made a...unique offer via social media this evening, picked up by Shams Charania of The Athletic. If fans of any team can gather $24,632,630 via GoFundMe, Dinwiddie will sign a one-year, minimum contract with that team.

The $24 million number is the amount of a single-year maximum deal.

Dinwiddie was scoring 20.6 points with 6.8 assists in 31.2 minutes per game for the Brooklyn Nets when the NBA season went on hiatus. He carried shooting percentages of 41.5% from the field, 30.8% from the three-point arc.

The 27-year-old guard will have to play for the Nets next year no matter what happens, as he’s under contract for $11.4 million. He has a $12.3 million player option in 2021-22 which he’d presumably forfeit should a fan base step up with between $1 apiece (for Lakers fans) and $12,316,315 each (for Kings fans).
