“Timing on the Dinwiddie signing is about as good as it could’ve been as far as onboarding goes,” Woike wrote. “Lakers have two days off and then a practice — and then a back-to-back with Detroit and Utah heading into the break.”
Dinwiddie will sign with the Lakers when he clears waivers Saturday afternoon. He was waived by the Toronto Raptors after a trade with the Brooklyn Nets.
Lakers star LeBron James addressed what Dinwiddie will bring to the club.
“Playmaking, another ball-handler, another shot-maker,” James told reporters. “Another veteran, that really helps. So we’ll see what happens.”
