The free-agent rumors season is upon us, and one of the most targeted free agents will be Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie. Despite Dinwiddie suiting up for just three games with Brooklyn this past season, he has been cleared for basketball activities, and a ton of teams will be kicking the tires for his services.
According to Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News, Dinwiddie wants to get paid, but also wants to return home to LA, leaving the Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers as the preferred destinations.
“Home is the preferred destination. But he wants to secure his financial future, too.”
As Winfield reports, the only way for Dinwiddie to go to LA is via sign-and-trade, and that might work for either LA team, with both looking to be active once again in the offseason.
When healthy, Dinwiddie is one of the better scoring guards in the game and a dangerous player to bring off the bench, especially against second-units around the league.
So, if Dinwiddie wants to go home and ultimately leave the Nets, he can theoretically decide between the pairing of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, or LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Both teams will have questions to answer in the offseason, and Dennis Schroder is a possible sign-and-trade option for the Lakers, with Kyle Kuzma being another reported trade option.
Dinwiddie to LA makes sense for either team and clearly, that is where he wants to be. All in all, Dinwiddie’s days with the Nets appear close to an end.
