Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie talks about Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant signing with Brooklyn

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie said the obvious on Friday; the team is going to be a lot better moving forward with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in the mix.

Irving and Durant agreed to four-year deals with the Nets on the first day of free agency. Dinwiddie reportedly recruited Irving to Brooklyn.

Kevin Durant is likely going to miss the entire 2019-20 season recovering from his right Achilles tear. However, the Nets are still going to be a lot of fun to watch next season with Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan, Spencer Dinwiddie, Jarrett Allen, Caris LeVert and Joe Harris leading the way. Brooklyn also agreed to free agent deals with veteran forwards Garrett Temple and Wilson Chandler.

Irving is no doubt mercurial, but he’s one of the best point guards in the NBA. Uncle Drew averaged 23.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game this past season with the Boston Celtics while shooting 48.7 percent from the field, 40.1 percent from beyond the arc and 87.3 percent from the free-throw line. The Nets are hoping Irving can avoid having any dramatic moments in the locker room.

Dinwiddie is a top bench guy in the league. He averaged 16.8 points this past season in 68 games. Once Durant, a career 27.0 points per game scorer, recovers from his injury, the Nets will have a really good chance at winning the championship.
