Dinwiddie suffered a season-ending ACL injury and underwent surgery earlier this season. The Nets applied to the league for exception several weeks ago.
Per John Hollinger of The Athletic, the exception would be valued at about $5.7 million. The Nets could use it to sign a player for the rest of the season for that amount, or in a trade for a player who’s expiring salary matches that amount.
“Since the Nets also still have the full taxpayer mid-level exception ($5.718MM) on hand, the DPE may end up being more useful on the trade market,” wrote Luke Adams of HoopsRumors. “Brooklyn will have until April 19 to use it.”
