Spencer Dinwiddie is one player who the Brooklyn Nets could move on from this offseason
Spencer Dinwiddie, the dynamic shooting guard of the Brooklyn Nets, announced his departure from Roc Nation last week and is now contemplating representing himself moving forward. Dinwiddie joined Jay-Z’s Roc Nation in September of 2019 when his agent at the time, Raymond Brothers was hired by the management and entertainment company.
With the most unpredictably long NBA season ever witnessed now firmly in the rearview, and an all but guaranteed short offseason clearly on the horizon, this recent move from Dinwiddie might prove to be a bit of foreshadowing on his part.
Dinwiddie’s name has surfaced over the past few months as someone who could be shipped out of Brooklyn in the, not so distant future. In short, the Nets are expected to comb through the trade market in an attempt to acquire a third star ahead of the 2021 season. Dinwiddie is one of the team’s most-valued assets on the roster and would almost certainly be involved in any upgrade to the roster.

Sure…on the surface this sounds like an everyday occurrence in professional sports. And quite frankly, it is.
But the most intriguing part of this equation is that Dinwiddie currently has other teammates on the Nets who are still clients of Roc Nation. Both Kyrie Irving and budding star Caris LeVert are represented by Roc Nation.
Seeing as how Irving recently christened himself and best friend Kevin Durant as co-collaborative head coaches alongside first time, and actual head coach Steve Nash, this move by Dinwiddie could be the stamp on a one-way ticket out of town.
Dinwiddie, as well as LeVert and big man Jarrett Allen have been among the most popular names that could potentially be moved during this shortened NBA offseason.
With Dinwiddie exiting from Roc Nation, this could be a foreshadowing of what might be on the horizon for the young guard.
The Nets now have a log jam of guys that tend to operate with the ball in hand often, and with Durant set to make his NBA return in 2020-21, along with Irving and LeVert, Dinwiddie could end up being the third if not fourth option many nights offensively.
And so now, it seems as if the Nets have options, as well as assets, to dangle seductively in front of potential suitors looking to add either a young scorer or big man to round out its roster. This is one storyline that will be intently followed by many fans and the media leading up to the season.
