NBA player Spencer Dinwiddie has an incentive included in his contract

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning, I'm A Martínez. Spencer Dinwiddie joined the Lakers last weekend after being let go by the Toronto Raptors. His new contract will pay him about 7% of what he could have earned in Toronto, which was over 20 million bucks. But if the Lakers win the NBA championship, he will receive a bonus of $1. Dinwiddie says this incentive was also in his previous contract, and it's more of an inside joke between him and his agent. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
