The Heat are looking to rebuild this summer and multiple reports have Miami linked to Brooklyn Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie.
The odds of Dinwiddie remaining in Brooklyn dropped significantly just weeks ago when the seventh-year guard declined his $12.3 million player option for next year, as first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
On July 9, New York Daily News‘ Kristian Winfield named the Heat as one of the top teams interested in the 28-year-old guard: “Multiple reports also suggest the Miami Heat are interested in signing Dinwiddie to join Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.”
Bleacher Report‘s Dan Favale, however, believes Dinwiddie would be making a mistake by taking his talents to South Beach. Favale says he doesn’t fit offensively alongside the Heat’s core duo that is Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo:
Dinwiddie brings a lot of the offensive qualities the Heat could use to soup up their attack in the event their cap space — a little over $20 million projected — cannot bag glitzier names, but the offensive dynamics between he and their two best players would be murky at best and unworkable at worst.
For his part, though, he needs to end up somewhere that forecasts as a less complicated offensive fit. In other words: somewhere he doesn’t have to spend so much time off the ball.
