Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy isn't relying on rookie Spencer Dinwiddie (ACL tear) as a rotation player this season, but he won't hesitate to use him if he's healthy.
Dinwiddie tore his ACL in January and remains out indefinitely. "We want to follow his rehabilitation," said Van Gundy. "We don’t want to get caught up in the calendar as much as what’s going on with his knee." Detroit's new coach praised Dinwiddie's size, defensive prowess and pass-first mentality, adding, "I think he’s a rare 6'6" guy who is a true point guard." Aug 12 - 3:02 PM

The Pistons have signed Spencer Dinwiddie to a three-year deal.

An ACL tear ended his time at Colorado, but Dinwiddie is a very interesting case. On top of turning down a chance to go to Harvard, Dinwiddie has a nice skill set and could crack the rotation as soon as he's healthy. He's a first-round talent and we'll be watching his rehab leading into training camp.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he's not expecting Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) to play in 2014-15.

He's not ruling him out and said it would be a bonus for the rookie to play this upcoming season. Dinwiddie did say he'd be ready for training camp since tearing his ACL back in January, but the Pistons will proceed with caution. He's only on the radar in dynasty leagues for now.

Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) will not play in Orlando Summer League but will accompany the team.

He had ACL surgery back in January, so there is some optimism that he'll be ready for training camp. Dinwiddie said he considers himself a true point guard, but general manager Jeff Bower said the team could use him as a combo guard. The Pistons bench was a weakness last year, ranking in the bottom five for effective field goal percentage and defensive efficiency. Dinwiddie won't have pressure on him early on, but he could be someone to watch in the middle of the season.

General manager Jeff Bower said Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) doesn't have a timetable for basketball activities.

Bower added that the Pistons aren't going to rush him back from his ACL rehab. Dinwiddie has ACL surgery back in January, so there's at least a chance he could be ready for training camp. The Pistons view the 6'6" Colorado product as a combo guard, which can only help his playing time. Plus, his 41.3 percent from downtown last year will certainly get coach Stan Van Gundy's attention. We'll keep an eye on his progress since he is certainly a first-round talent and the current Pistons' roster is not something SVG would wish on his worst enemy.

The Pistons used the No. 38 pick to draft Colorado SG Spencer Dinwiddie.

This was Detroit's only pick in the draft. Dinwiddie's perimeter shooting is the main draw for NBA scouts, as he connected on 41.3 percent of his attempts from downtown as a junior, but unfortunately his season ended early when he tore his left ACL in January. He's resumed running and took part in limited workouts for NBA teams, but it will be a while before he's 100 percent.
