Sources tell B/R part of the reasoning for Brooklyn keeping Spencer Dinwiddie past the trade deadline was the Nets’ ability to sign-and-trade their combo guard for another piece in their star-studded rotation. Dinwiddie could also return to the Nets.
Dinwiddie has been thrown into a number of trade rumors over the past few weeks, and now we know why.
By all accounts, Spencer isn’t a part of their future, and we can expect him to be wearing a different jersey by next season.
The question is, where will he end up? As a solid, versatile, two-way swing man, he’d be a major asset to any team in the association.
At this point, we’ll just have to wait and see for ourselves what the future has in store.
