Spencer Dinwiddie sounds nervous about James Harden-to-Nets speculation

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie recently reacted to a tweet by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski detailing Houston Rockets star James Harden’s desires to be shipped to the New York-based squad. A trade to acquire the eight-time All-Star would almost certainly mean that the Nets would have to give up Dinwiddie, who has been an integral piece for the team in recent seasons.

Dinwiddie is feeling the sweat:

Dinwiddie also posted a Simpsons meme on Twitter, which is indicative of his restlessness over the uncertainty of his situation in Brooklyn:

Dinwiddie has made a name for himself as a mainstay for the Nets ever since arriving to the team back in 2016 after previously impressing in a short stint with the Windy City Bulls.

Dinwiddie’s numbers have constantly improved every year as he has emerged as one of the regular options to carry the scoring load for the team. The Nets guard took his game to another level last season, tallying career-best numbers of 20.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game.

Despite his improvement on the floor, it is expected that he will be relegated to the backseat with the looming return of both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving next season. Regardless of his potentially diminished role, it is still evident that Dinwiddie wants to remain with the Nets moving forward.

There is still no certainty as to whether a blockbuster trade will indeed push through between the two teams in the offseason even with the feelers being sent out by Harden. Dinwiddie can only hope that the Rockets will pull off a Gregg Popovich and trade Harden to an unexpected team instead in order for him to remain in Brooklyn for the 2020-2021 NBA season.
