Rumor: Spencer Dinwiddie, Jarrett Allen, Caris LeVert could be available via trade in offseason
The Nets could use those players in a package to acquire a third star next to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving:
Several people mentioned the Nets could be active in trades. Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen are all names that rival executives believe to be available in some form. They could be attractive pieces for the Nets to package together to land a third star that sends them to the top of the conference. Some also wonder whether Brooklyn will spend big to keep unrestricted free agent Joe Harris this summer.
When Irving and Durant join the Nets next season, Brooklyn will be legitimate title contenders. Irving finished his first season with the Nets averaging 27.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists. He played in 20 games.
By all accounts, the Nets love shooting guard Joe Harris. We’ll see if that means the franchise is ready to open their pockets for the sharpshooter, as Harris becomes an unrestricted free agent after this season ends.
The Nets are 26-29 on the season. They are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings. It’s not a guarantee they will make the playoffs now that Irving is done.
Ironically, Brooklyn will need Dinwiddie, LeVert and Allen to play at a high level to close out the season.
