Report: Wizards likely to acquire Spencer Dinwiddie in sign-and-trade with Nets
The Wizards are opening a big hole at point guard by trading Russell Westbrook to the Lakers. Reserves Ish Smith and Raul Neto are free agents, too.
Washington is landing a new backup in the Pacers’ Aaron Holiday.
As for a starter, how about the Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie?
In Kuzma and Harrell, the Nets could get frontcourt depth around their perimeter star trio of James Harden, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Washington has also has several other moderately paid players who could fit into the deal.
Though Kuzma’s and Harrell’s salaries couldn’t be re-aggregated after the Lakers trade, that deal won’t become official for at least another week. So, that trade could get expanded to include Dinwiddie with Kuzma and Harrell getting rerouted to Brooklyn.
