Nets willing to package picks, player to move up in draft?

Nets rising standout Spencer Dinwiddie could be on the move this summer, according to a report.

Shooting guard Spencer Dinwiddie could be available as the Brooklyn Nets are looking to move up in the NBA draft, according to a report from Michael Scotto of The Athletic.

The Nets currently own the No. 29 overall pick in the first round, as well as the No. 40 and 45 overall in the second.

According to Scotto, the Nets are attempting to move into the teens while maintaining salary-cap flexibility for the summer of 2019.

Dinwiddie is coming off a career-year four seasons removed from an ACL injury — and as Scotto noted, is due to make just more than $1.6 million next season in the final year of his contract.

“The Denver Nuggets (14th overall), Washington Wizards (15th) and Milwaukee Bucks (17) are teams in win-now mode that could dangle their picks to the Nets and the rest of the league,” Scotto wrote.

The draft is scheduled for June 21 at the Barclays Center, home of the Nets.

  1. Win now mode is a foolish strategy even more so now when GW is in a win forever mode. That what has led the Cavs to this point. No player development, no almost all-star on rookie deals, no flexibility, players above their prime on bloated salaries and then the lottery.
