“Which Ones!?”: Brooklyn Nets’ PG Pokes Sarcastic Remark as NBA Insider Sparks Trade Rumors

Published 11/10/2020, 5:30 AM EST


The Brooklyn Nets will very certainly have a zillion eyes on them once the season kicks off. They have a new coach, two stars finally joining them, and in all aspects a very balanced team. But before that, the questions are mounting on guard Spencer Dinwiddie and his trade options.

The 27-year-old Dinwiddie signed a three-year deal with the Nets in 2019 after spending two years with the franchise. His deal got him $34.3 million and also a $12.3 million player option in the final year. It is highly likely that he will decline that player option, but what about the recent reports about teams interested in him?

Spencer Dinwiddie and the trade rumors circulating him

In the latest development on Spencer’s future with the Nets, sources revealed, “Multiple western conference contenders have expressed interest internally in trading for Nets SG Spencer Dinwiddie.”

Now, this came as a surprise, not just for the fans, but for Dinwiddie himself. At least that is how he made it appear from his latest Twitter post. The star point guard sarcastically wrote, “Which ones!? Put an address on em lol I wanna know just like everyone else.”

However, one can expect such a response from the loyal player who had earlier expressed his clear intentions to stay with the Nets. A month ago, he had shared that he wants to become for the Nets what Draymond Green is for the Warriors. He clearly sees himself as the Nets’ third option after Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The Nets have seen Dinwiddie growing with them. In the past four years with the Nets, the 6’5” man has only shown an upward graph. He took his per game average from 7.3 in 2016-17 to 20.6 in 2019-20. The positive coronavirus report stopped his campaign, or else he could’ve helped the Nets achieve better results in the playoffs.

With Caris LeVert and other talents, the Nets are a very strong team. They might have a second-round 55th pick this time, but they are not in any desperate need to fill the backcourt. Hence, it is not very likely that they’ll trade Spencer Dinwiddie unless they get an extremely lucrative offer that can match the likes of their star duo.
