Trade Destination for Wizards Guard Spencer Dinwiddie: Houston Rockets

It wasn’t too long ago the Washington Wizards made a blockbuster trade with the Houston Rockets. That deal was the trade that brought back Russell Westbrook and sent out John Wall.

Now, the teams can link up again in a deal once again centered around a point guard. The ROckets remain where they were when the previous trade was made; rebuilding and focused on assets more than current producers.

If it nets them an extra asset or two moving forward, the Rockets will consider it. That’s what makes them a real option as a landing spot for Spencer Dinwiddie.

If the market proves to be weak for the guard, they are going to have to contact teams that will view him as little more than a salary dump. The Wizards might be willing to move him, even in this case, if the situation internally is as bad as reports suggest it is.

Additionally, Dinwiddie’s value will only increase as we move forward. At the end of the year he is one year closer to being an expiring contract and wth each day he is another day removed from serious injury.

While he wouldn’t be in the long term plans of the Rockets, he could find a spot in the rotation with enough minutes to show teams what he is capable of. This would help their chances of moving him down the road, possibly for some decent assets.

The contract of Eric Gordon could be the base of a deal from a financial standpoint. That would likely include more teams, as the Wizards don’t need to add more bodies in the rotation to take minutes from Deni Advija and Corey Kispert.

If the Wizards get aggrssive with this one, maybe Christian Wood can be involved. They’d need to include signicant assets to make this happen, though.
