NBA Rumors: Nets, Magic Could Explore Spencer Dinwiddie-For-Aaron Gordon Trade This Summer

Despite Kyrie Irving's comment about their need to add more talents to contend for the NBA championship title, the Brooklyn Nets still let the 2020 February NBA trade deadline pass without making any major moves. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that the Nets are content with their current roster and are just waiting for Kevin Durant and Irving to return to perfect health. Though the 2019-20 NBA season is far from over, several NBA players who are expected to be available on the trade market in the summer of 2020 have already been linked to the Nets, including Aaron Gordon of the Orlando Magic.

In his recent article, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York revealed that the Nets received trade inquiries from the Magic and the Detroit Pistons involving veteran point guard Spencer Dinwiddie before the 2020 February NBA trade deadline. If the Magic once again express their desire in acquiring Dinwiddie in the 2020 NBA offseason, Begley suggested that the Nets may consider demanding a trade package that includes Gordon in return.

"Some members of the Magic and Pistons, specifically, had internal interest in exploring trades for Dinwiddie prior to the trade deadline, per SNY sources. Could a package including Dinwiddie have landed a player like Aaron Gordon from Orlando? Is Gordon the kind of player that can help push Brooklyn into the East's upper echelon? Some execs believe a player like Gordon can help Brooklyn but wouldn't push them into the echelon of NBA title contender. But again, the only person whose opinion truly matters here is Marks' and the Nets' players he consults."
