Dinwiddie is currently under contract with the Nets and is in the first year of a 3-year, $34 million deal, according to Yahoo Sports.

Roberson was raised in San Antonio in a family with seven kids, including older brother Andre Roberson who also plays in the NBA as a shooting guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Arielle and Andre were both stars at Wagner High School.

The news sparked some speculation on social media that Dinwiddie may consider playing for the Spurs in the future. The earliest he can become a free agent is after the 2021 season.

He is averaging 20 points and nearly 7 assists per game this season for Brooklyn.
