6. Spencer Dinwiddie
This offseason Spencer Dinwiddie was the first player ever to try to forgo the rest of his contract and let the fans potentially choose his free-agent destination by donating his salary through a GoFundMe with bitcoin. His request was denied by the NBA, because it was rather ludicrous but in his Instagram post, he did include a picture of himself in a Lakers jersey as a potential next destination.
He also included the crosstown rival Clippers in his Instagram as well, so it seems as if Los Angeles is preferred destination for his next team.
One reason he may want to leave and he is kind of expendable for the Nets is because they possess one of the best point guards in the entire NBA in Kyrie Irving. Dinwiddie has already proven he is capable of being a starter in the NBA, so if he wants more playing time a trade could be imminent.
One team he could step in and start for immediately would be the Lakers because of their desperate need for a shot creator in their backcourt. Dinwiddie averaged 20.6 points per game last season and would provide them with a great third scoring option to pair with their dynamic duo of Anthony Davis and LeBron James.
One piece that could intrigue the Nets could be someone that they traded the night of the 2017 NBA Draft, Kyle Kuzma. When D’Angelo Russell eventually left Brooklyn maybe there were some regrets about trading the 28th pick for him because Kuzma could still be contributing on a rookie deal for them.
However, now Kuzma is a veteran and a champion in the NBA, so he could be an interesting piece for a Nets team that also will have title aspirations next season. Maybe a trade like Kuzma, Danny Green, Talen Horton-Tucker and a first-rounder would be enough to snag Dinwiddie from a team they could meet in the Finals next season.
Just this week, there were rumors that multiple western conference contenders are interested in Spencer Dinwiddie.
By the way, that tweet is worded, one would have to assume that the Lakers are one of those teams.
