Report: Dinwiddie plans to sign with Lakers after being waived by Raptors
Charania notes that several other playoff teams were interested in signing Dinwiddie, including the Dallas Mavericks.
Ahead of Thursday's NBA trade deadline, the Toronto Raptors acquired the 30-year-old guard from the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for point guard Dennis Schroder and power forward Thaddeus Young. The Raptors quickly placed Dinwiddie on waivers following the trade.
Over 48 games with the Nets this season, Dinwiddie is averaging 13.6 points, 5.3 assists and 3.1 rebounds alongside a 41.5 per cent field goal percentage.
Dinwiddie, selected by the Pistons in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft, is in the final year of his contract.
The Lakers are currently ninth in the Western Conference with a 28-26 record.
