Could someone please explain what sign and trade means?

All I know is Dinwiddie is finally going to get paid what he is worth.
He technically signed with Brooklyn then was immediately traded to Washington. Brooklyn does this so they don’t lose him for nothing.

He officially signed the contract with the Nets (his previous team), even though it was negotiated with the Wizards. He was then traded to the Wizards. This is done for salary cap reasons, it also allows the player to potentially get more money out of the deal. Sign and trades are mostly mutually beneficial for the player, and the team he's going to, and the team he's leaving usually gets draft picks or something else for helping facilitate the transaction. The Dinwiddie sign and trade is actually ludicrously complex because they roped in some other transactions that happened on draft day, and there are like 5 teams involved.

Short answer, they do it because of salary cap rules.

Tyler Bey with 2 points 1 board, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and two turnovers in 9 minutes with the Bulls summer league. Still kind of shocked the Mav's let him go after him showing out well for their G league team and them investing a high second round pick on him. This is a make or break summer league for him. He needs more than 9 minutes though.

Kin can potentially make this Wolves roster!
He is an ideal Backup Point Guard in the NBA
So technically sound and so much fun to hear his name
Having a nice game, wished he would have dunked that breakaway he had

Kin 4/4 from the field 8 points, 5 steals, 3 boards, 2 assists! Plus 6! On winning team! Great first outing!
Pretty darn good Summer League game, and you could tell as the game went on that his teammates and coaches already felt comfortable with the ball in his hands, and that he commands respect. He is in a good place in Minnesota, and I would assume he is living at home?

I'm assuming that deal structure is missing an "M" if team wins a title, but regardless, happy to see Spencer get paid.

It's not.

His team negotiated an incentives-laden, three-year, $62 million contract and, to top it off, tossed in a $1 bonus if the Wizards win a championship. He says if they win a title, he wants his payout in pennies. Hopefully, he doesn’t spend them all on one thing. At first, Washington’s front office thought the title bonus was a joke. Once they realized it wasn’t, general manager Tommy Sheppard & Co. etched what must be the smallest incentive in NBA history into Dinwiddie’s deal.

Man, **** Patrick Beverly. He talks a big game, but has he actually made any team he's been on noticeably better? No.

I always thought Austin could become a good coach. Played 4 positions here and developed from a finesse perimeter guy to a hard nosed paint defender.

Great breadth of playing experience with a willingness to be the guy his team needed even though it hurt his own stats.

Not bad for someone who hails from Killdeer.
