Spencer Dinwiddie’s fit
The Lakers could seize the opportunity of getting rid of Danny Green and addressing their most pressing need. Two birds with a stone, as it is said.
If Rajon Rondo really leaves, finding a reliable backup point guard will be the number one priority for Rob Pelinka. In his years in Brooklyn Dinwiddie has proven to be the kind of player capable of dragging a team by himself and that is exactly what LA needs for LeBron James’ rest.
Even if Rondo does not leave, we have seen that his high-level production is not guaranteed throughout the whole season. As a matter of fact, the Lakers spent the trade deadline in search of a reliable scorer for the bench. From this standpoint, Spencer would be a nice acquisition as well, as a good fit next to Rondo in a scoring role.
Theoretically, Green represents exactly what the Nets are looking for. An experienced 3&D veteran with championship experience.
With the new coaching staff the front office has put together, expect the Nets to play major minutes with Durant at center and this means they will need plenty of shooters to put around him and the super-ball-dominant Irving. Someone willing to stand on the arc and wait for the opportunity (if it ever presents itself) to receive the ball and shoot an open three. Green is cut for the job.
But things are not exactly so easy. The 11-year veteran has demonstrated multiple times throughout his career not to be the reliable player people think he is. The championship he just won with the Lakers proved it. He is too inconstant to be looked at as a reliable fix. The Nets might not be so willing to sacrifice Dinwiddie for him.
