BROOKLYN RECEIVES: Bradley Beal (28.7), Isaac Bonga (1.6)

WASHINGTON RECEIVES: Caris LeVert (16.2), Jarrett Allen (3.9), Kyle Kuzma (3.5), Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (8.5 team-option — assuming he opts in), 2021 Unprotected First Round Pick (from BKN), 2023 Right to Swap First Round Picks

LOS ANGELES RECEIVES: Spencer Dinwiddie (11.5)

More players may need to be added to this deal to make roster-spots fit. But holy toledo, Dinwiddie to the Lakers? Wasn’t he just doing this to them?

All anyone heard about Los Angeles this season was the lack of shot creation on the perimeter and how the team sunk offensively when LeBron James sat. Derrick Rose rumors circled to all corners of the NBA universe at the trade deadline.

Enter Dinwiddie, isolation scoring expert and a Los Angeles native.

For the Nets, this trade is identical to the most likely outcome, bar for a re-routing of Dinwiddie that may more suit the Wizards preference.

If Washington knows they may be priced out of Bertans, perhaps they’ll settle for point-forward Kuzma instead (and KCP to help salary’s fit).

Next. Should the Brooklyn Nets go all in on Bradley Beal?. dark

Perhaps Dinwiddie’s recent crowdfunding efforts will see him land in Los Angeles.
