They fought tooth and nail to make it to the Playoffs. But were defeated by the Toronto Raptors in 4 games, missing their chance at the title yet again.
It just wasn’t the year for them. Both the stars were expected to guide the Nets to the title. However, they opted out of the Orlando Bubble because of their injuries.
What’s more, their top scorer, Spencer Dinwiddie, also missed the season restart because he tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus, along with veteran DeAndre Jordan and Taurean Prince.
As the team enters the offseason, they will look to make their roster even better than before, like all other teams. With hopes in their heart for a better outcome this season, they are willing to make significant decisions for the franchise like trading their star point guard, Spencer Dinwiddie. However, does he want to be traded?
The Brooklyn Nets have clarified that they want a third star to support them in their chase for the championship next season. Some trade rumours have revealed that the Nets might have players like Jrue Holiday and Victor Oladipo in their radar.
With that, Dinwiddie has repeatedly come up as one of their best trade assets this offseason. At first, his name popped up on Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson’s Twitter, in which he claimed that Dinwiddie was brought up during the Nets’ trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans in return for Jrue Holiday.
He also included Jarrett Allen, Dzanan Musa and both of Brooklyn Nets’ 2020 draft picks. As soon as Spencer saw this, he responded to the tweet and said, “I liked yesterday’s news cycle better”, making it known that he doesn’t want to leave the Nets.
When another tweet about his trade hit the internet, Dinwiddie did not shy away from giving his opinion again. NetsDaily posted, “ESPN’s Brian Windhorst: Nets want to upgrade roster … but there’s a possibility @SDinwiddie_25 might be available depending on the deal, that’s what I’ve heard. Or at least there’s an expectation it could be. I don’t know if he’s available right now … but that’s possible.”
In a comical response, he wrote, “I had the most fun years of my career playing for the Nets. Outside of course when my dad used to coach me before middle school.”
As he is trying to shut down these rumors, looks like the guard is in no mood to leave. Will the Nets take this into consideration or continue to do what’s best for them?
