Spencer Dinwiddie is expected to leave the Brooklyn Nets this offseason, with the Washington Wizards being among the most heavily rumored destinations for the veteran guard.
According to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, though, a potential sign-and-trade between the Wizards and Nets involving Dinwiddie has hit a roadblock.
“…the heavily-rumored Spencer Dinwiddie sign-and-trade to Washington appears to have lost some momentum. Brooklyn has not signaled much interest in taking back either Kyle Kuzma’s or Montrezl Harrell’s contract onto its exorbitant tax bill, sources said, despite the Wizards’ ongoing efforts to move both bigs,” Fischer wrote.
Dinwiddie can still sign with Washington, if he is included in the Russell Westbrook trade because the deal is not official yet, and could be expanded to multiple teams, Fischer reports.
Several teams are included in Dinwiddie’s sweepstakes, as the New Orleans Pelicans and the Oklahoma City Thunder are seemingly interested in the former Colorado point guard.
With various teams seeking a starting-caliber point guard this offseason, Dinwiddie is expected to attract interest. So, the Wizards may have to come out on top in a bidding war for the Nets’ guard.
