The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly inquired about Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.
Lowe joined ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on The Woj Pod for an NBA trade deadline episode, and spoke about what types of moves the Lakers could make before 3 PM on Feb. 6.
"However the Lakers do have Kyle Kuzma," Lowe said. "We've heard him floated for lots of different guys, including not Marcus Morris, not Andre Iguodala, but point guard types.
"Not just Iguodala and Marcus Morris, but Spencer Dinwiddie, Dennis Schroder, I think that they've made some calls on."
Dinwiddie is averaging 21.3 points, 6.4 assists, and 3.3. rebounds per game this season in 49 contests. He would become the third leading scorer on the Lakers, behind LeBron James (25.2 points per game) and Anthony Davis (26.4 points per game). While Kuzma is currently the Lakers third leading scorer at 13.1 points per game.
Dinwiddie would help fill the hole at point guard for the Lakers, as veterans Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley have been handling the point guard role, in addition to James.The Lakers currently hold the best record in the Western Conference at 38-11.
The Nets signed Dinwiddie to a three-year, $34 million contract with a player option for the 2021-22 season.
SNY's Ian Begley has reported that in addition to Los Angeles, Detroit, Orlando and Atlanta also had interest in potential trades for Dinwiddie entering this week, per SNY sources.
