Spencer Dinwiddie has become the Los Angeles Lakers' newest player as GM Rob Pelinka acts fast in the buyout market after a disappointing trade deadline lack of moves that could've helped the team become a serious contender for the championship title of the 2023-24 NBA season.

After the speculation set by GM Rob Pelinka and the point guard himself with his attendance at the Lakers vs. New Orleans Pelicans, the team was quick to sign him as soon as Spencer cleared waivers with the Toronto Raptors.

It was revealed that the deal the Lakers signed Spencer with was north the 1.5 million thanks to the MLE they have available after the contract they signed with Gabe Vincent. Now has been revealed a hilariously outlandish bonus the new Laker will get in case the team wins this season's championship title.

Bobby Marks of ESPN disclosed an odd clause in Spencer Dinwiddie's new contract with the Lakers. He can receive up to $1,554,655 for the 2023-24 season. However, only $1,554,654 is the base salary for the deal. The remaining $1 is an incentive for when he wins an NBA championship with LeBron James, Darvin Ham, and Anthony Davis. No, that was not a typo. If the Lakers win, Dinwiddie only receives an extra dollar for his efforts.

Spencer Dinwiddie is the only move made by the Lakers in the trade deadline-buyout market

Dinwiddie was the only significant acquisition that the Lakers made during the span of the NBA Trade Deadline and buyout market. The 30-year-old's contract is looking very affordable considering his averages for the season. He can give the Lakers 12.6 points on a 39.1% clip from all three levels of scoring. Not to mention, he also drops six assists per contest and grabs 3.3 rebounds.
