The asking price for Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie on the trade market is believed to be a role player who can contribute this season, plus a second-round pick, league sources tell Michael Scotto of HoopsHype. Adrian Wojnarowski and Tim Bontemps suggested during the latest episode of The Woj Pod that Brooklyn would seek a solid wing defender in such a deal, as NetsDaily relays.
Dinwiddie will be a fascinating trade chip to monitor at the trade deadline, since his value is difficult to pin down. His partially torn ACL will likely prevent him from playing again this season and he’s expected to opt out of his contract at season’s end, as Scotto confirms.
Dinwiddie’s Bird rights have some value, especially to teams without projected 2021 cap room, but most of those clubs without cap space are playoff teams that seem unlikely to send Brooklyn win-now assets just to get a leg up on Dinwiddie’s free agency.
Here’s more from Scotto, with six days until the 2021 trade deadline:
- The Magic are thought to be seeking a first-round pick and a good young player in exchange for forward Aaron Gordon, reports Scotto. Gordon, Evan Fournier, and other Orlando players could be available at the deadline, but the team remains reluctant to move Nikola Vucevic, Scotto notes.
- Pacers guard Aaron Holiday would be available for a first-round pick, league sources tell Scotto. Indiana has always thought highly of Holiday, but a first-rounder may be an ambitious ask, given his reduced role and his underwhelming production (including a .377 FG%).
- Several opposing executives believe the Kings will be able to get a second-round pick for Nemanja Bjelica, says Scotto. If Sacramento is willing to take on salary beyond this season, a stronger return could be in play, but the team would prefer not to do so, sources tell HoopsHype.

Magic want a good young player plus a Future First for Gordon
Wolves can’t afford to pay them like that
Culver is viewed as a bust
All of these guys are overvalued
There are very few good young players
Celtics and 76ers would submit cheap offers
Gordon is that guy who has a lot of potential but never reaches it. They should be able to get a 1st round pick for him or a good young player but i doubt both. Maybe a 1st round out of the top 10 and a young player that hasn’t lived up to his draft position.
Smoking some weed if they think they’ll get a pick and a player for Dinwiddie. I can see some teams looking to potentially dump a salary for next year and free up cap space. Here’s who I can see going to the Nets and the Nets may need to include a piece to get some of these:
Under Contract thru 21-22:
Why would Miami deal Ariza to Brooklyn?
There’s chatter about the Heat trading for Dinwiddie, Ariza hasn’t even played this year, only cost them Leonard’s expiring deal who is out for the season and a distant future 2nd. If the Heat wanted Dinwiddies bird rights, Ariza is who I’d send.
I view Ariza as garbage expiring contract
I can’t believe he was traded for 2070 future pick
Brah ….. you need to put that bong down.
Dinwiddie is the best PG available. He’s 27 got size and plays both ways. He’s better than Lonzo, Bledsoe, Rozier, Nunn. He can start for most teams.
.80% FT, 20.6 pts, 6.8 ast, 4 reb. And plays D
He’s worth more than those talking heads are saying.
Knicks easily would give more than that. Nets are not giving him away. It will take a 1st rd pick and a player. Minimum
I like a guy that isn’t injured personally
KD n Kyrie n Klay were all injured when they signed Max contracts. How that work out. Dinwiddie is younger by far. And his injury isn’t as serious. I’m good with him.
Dimwiddie’s injury might be lesser, he might be younger as well, but…, KD is a legend of the game, Kyrie is a superstar, Klay is a star… meanwhile… Dimwiddie isn’t even a starter so his name doesn’t belong there in that list!
I rather pay 40MM to a broken KD than 4MM to a healthy Dimwiddie, if you ask me, right?
Depends if it is my money or someone else’s money. It’s always easy to splurge with other people’s money, but with my money I would prefer the bargain.
Dinwiddie started all last yr and put up 21 n 7. Plus he plays D. He’s worth more than Schroeder, Rozier, Lonzo, Rubio and must I go on. There’s no Freakin list here. This is in response to signing an injured player. I guess I need to explain it to 5 yr old. Those players injuries were twice as bad as what Dinwiddie had. This is about signing an injured player. If you believe in him you sign him. I don’t believe in Oladipo so I don’t go for him. I do believe Dinwiddie can run the point and put up 18 n 10 on Knicks team. Try and keep up dude.
Pretty much. Dinwiddie, at most, will fetch an overpriced player that a team wants to discard in any case, and a 2nd for the Nets taking the guy. Dinwiddie, the player, isn’t being traded, just his contract and it’s value is mostly that it’s (effectively) expiring.
Maybe a better player if the Nets throw in some of those 2nd round picks, or a young player, from their end. But it seems like they just want a 2nd rounder, and a body they might use.
I’ll say it again. I’m against trading Dinwiddie now. At the very least, the Nets should use his DPE first to acquire someone like JaVale McGee or Trey Lyles who doesn’t fit into his team’s plans for a second rounder. I’m sure those teams would prefer Reggie Perry to a future second rounder.
Outside of that, I think Dinwiddie may be able to return and contribute in the playoffs. Plus I think he could opt in for another shot at a ring.
Love to see the Knicks get Fournier and Dinwiddie. Both of them would take less than a so called star. And would give better results long term.
Magic should just clean house. They are not resigning their players. So it’s best to look to future build around who you keep. Moving Bamba, Gordon, Fournier, would bring back picks. For a deep draft this yr. With their pick they will be a young talented team. Seems they been spinning their wheels since Howard left.
Do all of you who talk about Dinwiddie ever watched him. The man is 6’6” in sneakers, 215 LBs, has a 8’7” reach, and a 6’8.5” wingspan. Which means he is long and got size. If you watched him play. You know he has an excellent handle. He shoots .80% FT.
So it means ———— he’s a big PG. Who can shoot. Who put up 21 pts and 7 ast while playing 31.2 mins a gm last yr. And he plays D. Being a real fan. And a true baller. I try, all should try finding players that can fit and help your team. Or any team. It shows you follow the game. It shows you know the game. Trust me I’m not a casual fan. I know ball. My eyes got talent. I believe in Dinwiddie for my team as a PG. at 27 he would be a leader on Knicks. And at 15-18 mill a yr. It’s a great pickup. His injury is a partial tear. Oladipo s was worse and he’s putting up 20.
“This is for you Don”. Like KD, Ky, Klay I would have no problem signing him cause I believe he will come back 100%. Like those three players. OK we good.
I’ve been pushing for Dinwiddie since Nets signed Kyrie. I got one more for the meddlers. I’ve been pushing Fournier too. Another guy who probably signs for under 20 mill. A big SG who can shoot. What we need. Knicks need ….. did you watch gm with Nets
Well did you…… go watch it now or the highlights.
Fournier line against best team in East ——
35.25 mins, 31 pts, 83.3% FT, 75% 3PT.
So Knicks a .500 team now. What do we think they become if they add those two guys. Both FA next yr. And we got potentially 55 mill to spend. I actually do the work to talk the talk. Knowledge is king lol.
As a matter of fact humility & modesty are the kings… arrogance is just plain awful, insufferable & renders your tiny lil’ bit of basic knowledge completely useless!
