In discussing Dinwiddie on Perez’s Radio Roulette show, Woj essentially seemed to tone down expectations of a big return for the 6’6” point guard. Dinwiddie, of course, is out for the year with a partially torn ACL and has been rehabbing in southern California on his own. “A team that might want Spencer Dinwiddie’s Bird Rights might want to sign him. Nets can get that money off. They can get back maybe a second round pick,” said Woj. “I know there are some teams that like Dinwiddie and would like to give Brooklyn a guy who has money coming back next year and that doesn’t really interest the Nets, like take on some money for next year.” Rather, he said, the Nets want “a player they might like down the stretch this year but it’s not really worth the tradeoff and so that’ll be an interesting one to watch too.”
