Hollinger: I don’t really see what the Nets are offering to bring New Orleans to the table. It has to involve Dinwiddie’s expiring contract, but that has near-zero value for the Pelicans — he’s out for the season and leaving in free agency once it ends. The Nets gave up all their good draft assets in the James Harden trade, so what are they baiting the hooks with? Landry Shamet, who is basically Redick but a decade younger? Nic Claxton? It’s just hard for me to see how Brooklyn gets this to the finish line.
