Add Colorado's Spencer Dinwiddie to the list of prospects interviewed by Brooklyn Nets

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

Spencer Dinwiddie, a 6'6" guard out of Colorado is the latest draft prospect to say he's been interviewed by the Nets. Asked at last week's Pre-Draft Combine, what teams talked to him, Dinwiddie replied, "Golden State, Memphis, Washington, Brooklyn and Toronto."

In addition to Dinwiddie, UCONN's Shabazz Napier, D-Leaguer Thanasis Antetokounmpo and Nevada's Deonte Burton have said the Nets interviewed them. That's by no means the complete list. Teams don't say who they've spoken with.

Dinwiddie is currently listed at #38 in the Draft Express mock draft and #35 by NBADraft.net. That's about the high end of what $2 million would buy you in this draft. Dinwiddie would likely have been higher, almost certainly first round, if he hadn't torn his ACL this season, his third at Boulder.

The Los Angeles native, who Draft Express lists as a shooting guard, says he's more a point guard ... who can shoot.

"I'm a 6'6" point guard who IS a point guard," said Dinwiddie when asked to describe his game. "Not a shooting guard who's trying to be a point guard. Not a guy who scores but passes at the last second, a guy who understands controlling pace and getting the ball to the right place and plays a self-less brand of basketball."

Who does he model his game after? "Maybe Shaun Livingston, Penny Hardaway, those type of combo, 6'6" - 6'7" long, athletic, rangy, versatile guys," said Dinwiddie.

Dinwiddie is still recovering from his ACL tear suffered mid-season. He was averaging 14.7 points, 3.8 assists, and 1.5 steals for the Buffs and shooting 41 percent from three when he went down. His injury derailed the chances Colorado had at a good NCAA tournament run.
