• Brooklyn Nets may not get a lot of offers for the sidelined Spencer Dinwiddie
  • Dinwiddie holds low chances of returning this NBA season
  • His injury and expiring contract make him a high-risk acquisition

The Brooklyn Nets have been silently getting stronger by acquiring some key names like Blake Griffin. While they've been mostly acquiring new faces, the Nets are open to dealing away players if NBA teams meet their demands, a report says.

One player Brooklyn is open to moving is Spencer Dinwiddie, Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reported, citing unnamed sources. International Business Times could not independently verify this information.

The 27-year-old has hardly seen action this season after suffering a partial ACL tear—one reason why it may make no sense for teams to trade for him. Add to that the fact that he is on an expiring deal. The three-year, $34.3 million deal he signed with the Nets in 2020 will be lapsing, meaning the 6-foot-5 guard will become an unrestricted free agent in the NBA offseason.

With these facts on the table, it may be unlikely for other NBA teams to trade for Dinwiddie unless they want to unload some of their old players or hope to get the California native now and re-sign him for the coming years.

If a team does decide to trade for Dinwiddie before the Thursday NBA trade deadline, the Nets want a role player and a second-round pick in exchange, per Scotto's sources.

These reported demands make sense. The team has big names like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden, but role players are needed.

PJ Tucker would have made sense. but the 35-year-old ended up being sent to the Milwaukee Bucks. Ironically, the do-it-yourself forward had the impression that he would be joining Harden in Brooklyn, The Athletic reported. But as most know by now, that is all water under the bridge.

Speaking of Harden, the Nets gave up a lot of their picks to acquire “The Beard,” and such is the reason why Brooklyn is now trying to replenish their stock. Some teams have a lot of them, including the Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics.

But the real question is: will teams want someone who holds low chances of playing and carries an expiring contract? However, anything can happen in the coming days depending on the outlook of some NBA teams.
