Brooklyn Nets vs Washington Wizards Notes and Observations: 12-22-17

Russell is in line for restricted free agency in that same offseason. There have been no indications yet that the Nets won’t prioritize him over Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie has played well enough and probably comes on enough of a discount where prioritizing Russell for potentially a $20+ million a year contract seems questionable at least. But, reality is reality. Also, with Lin likely to take the player option for next season, Dinwiddie likely plays as a backup to the two bigger-named guards in 2018-19, only with likely diminished value.
