The Brooklyn Nets will look very different when they take the court to start the 2020-21 NBA season. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant will be in the lineup setting the tone and with that comes the expectation of contending for a championship. Could trading Spencer Dinwiddie to a team with something intriguing to offer better their chances to win-it-all?
When the Nets had to attempt to get by without Durant for the entire season and then Irving, too, Dinwiddie had to shoulder a greater playmaking role. He displayed intriguing signs showing the capability of scoring at a moderate volume while being able to create shots for teammates.
One of the concerns with Dinwiddie is that he lacks much for an efficient jump shot. If he can’t hit open shots at a high clip, opposing teams could opt to pre-rotate off him when he’s spacing the floor— sending additional pressure to Durant and Irving.
If the Nets want to configure the roster completely around Durant and Irving, making a move to add more shooting or impactful defenders could be the best course of action. The best trade chip aside from Caris LeVert that Brooklyn has is Dinwiddie.
