Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie reacts to trade rumors while watching Ozark
However, the NBA rumor mill wouldn’t let it happen.
The Nets are reportedly looking to acquire a third star next to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. That means Dinwiddie could be part of a package deal and he’s apparently getting mentioned in a bunch of trade rumors already.
We have a whole pandemic, I’m watching the Ozark on @netflix and ppl talking about me getting traded…
Yep, standard. Oh, and I’m smoking short ribs 🤙🏾

Before the NBA suspended the 2019-20 season, Spencer Dinwiddie was playing the best basketball of his career, which means his trade value is at its highest for the Nets.
To get another star in Brooklyn, the Nets will likely have to part ways with Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen.
Dinwiddie appeared in 64 games for Brooklyn prior to the COVID-19 suspension. He was averaging 20.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 6.8 assists while shooting 41.5 percent from the field, 30.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free-throw line.
The Nets signed Dinwiddie to a three-year, $34.4 million contract extension in December of 2018. He’s making $10,605,600 this season and due $11,454,048 in 2020-21.
The team had a record of 30-34 before the 2019-20 season was suspended. They were in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
Dinwiddie, who began his NBA career with the Detroit Pistons, has career averages of 12.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 317 regular-season games with the Pistons and Nets. If he becomes available on the trade block, Brooklyn is going to get a lot of calls on Dinwiddie — but only time will tell if they will be able to acquire the superstar they covet.
