25. Spencer Dinwiddie — Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers receive: G Spencer Dinwiddie
Brooklyn Nets receive: F Kyle Kuzma, G Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, F Talen Horton-Tucker
The Nets struck gold on Dinwiddie after the former second-round pick out of Colorado endured failed stints with the Pistons and Bulls. Dinwiddie exhibits all the fixings of a ball-dominant guard — great size, good handle, and the ability to knock down step-back jumpers. Kyrie Irving’s arrival to Brooklyn has stifled Dinwiddie’s playing time a bit, and he could be on the move sooner rather than later.
Dinwiddie has made some interesting business decisions over the past couple of years. He attempted to sell shares of his contract to fans, but was shut down quickly by the league. Recently he’s attempted to crowd-fund his next contract while allowing donators to dictate where he will sign his next contract. Though he remains far away from his goal ($24 million) at this current juncture, it will be intriguing to see how his plan unfolds.
If there were any group of fans that could pony up the cash, the rabid Laker fan base could potentially be of service. The Lakers could sorely use a secondary playmaker alongside LeBron James, and Dinwiddie’s length and ability to attack the basket would fit in well in Los Angeles.
