Nets nearly traded Spencer Dinwiddie for Kelly Oubre

The volume on complaints surely would have been higher had the Nets been successful in their attempts to trade the injured Spencer Dinwiddie for a wing player. Among the options they explored, I’m told, was sending Dinwiddie to Golden State for Kelly Oubre. Golden State rejected those overtures because it is still desperate to make the playoffs. While numerous Oubre trade scenarios came up, Golden State was not going to trade him for someone who couldn’t help the team in the short term.
Spencer Dinwiddie, Nets — OK, this is a far-flung idea, but hear me out: The Nets are unlikely to buy out Dinwiddie just to save a minimum contract dollar amount because they might be able to do stuff with him in a sign-and-trade this offseason. But what if the dollars were more significant? Remember, the money gets multiplied by the luxury tax hit, so if Dinwiddie were to walk away from the $4 million or so he’s owed the rest of the year, plus the tax multiplier, Brooklyn would have to look into savings that would eclipse eight figures.
