Russell Westbrook deal could lead Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie to Wizards

Published

on

The Russell Westbrook blockbuster could have impact ripples that reach north all the way to Brooklyn.

The Wizards are reportedly eyeing Spencer Dinwiddie, with the Nets free agent point guard potentially in the mix to get moved in a sign-and-trade.

While Washington shipped Westbrook to the Lakers, joining LeBron James and Anthony Davis in a Big Three to rival Brooklyn’s, the deal could have other implications for the Nets. Kyle Kuzma and Montrezl Harrell could be rerouted to the Nets in order to acquire Dinwiddie, according to BetMGM.

After the Nets finished their draft, general manager Sean Marks was predictably coy about any potential trades. But he was full of praise for Dinwiddie, who has recovered from a partially-torn ACL in the third game of this past season and averaged a career-high 20.6 points the year before.

“It’s difficult to discuss the hypotheticals. It sounds like you know more about the upcoming trades and so forth than I do,” Marks said jokingly when asked about the purported deal. “But we’ve been focused on the draft right now.

“Spencer obviously being a pending free agent, we’ll have to wait for the right time to talk to him and talk to his agents and his people, and we’ll figure out what’s best for both Spencer and the Nets. And if there’s something to be done where he’s returning, terrific. If there’s not and he’s moving on, look, we wish Spencer all the best. He’s been nothing but a pro his entire time here and to be quite frank, he deserves the right to be a free agent.”

Dinwiddie became a free agent by opting out of the final $12 million year on his contract. He has openly said while he would re-sign if the Nets offered him five years and $125 million, he feels his comps are the four-year, $85 million deals that Malcolm Brogdon and Fred VanVleet got.

Marks wouldn’t openly hazard a guess on Dinwiddie’s market. But he sure sounds like he knows it will be fairly high.

“Well, I think that gets back to the work that Spencer has put in,” Marks said. “I can’t tell you what his market is going to be. I can hypothetically have a stab at it. But the good thing for him is he’s likely in line for generational money and he deserves it. He’s put in a lot of work and we obviously are very happy for anybody that’s done that, and deservedly so.”


Marks gushed over departing assistant Mike D’Antoni, who stepped away from his assistant job and won’t be part of the team in any capacity.

“He was an amazing and is an amazing, amazing coach, and even better individual,” Marks said. “Our time here with Mike and learning from him over the past year was incredible what that what he brought to our group was absolutely terrific. We all know how close Steve [Nash] and Mike are. And he brought a dimension to our group that we will certainly miss, without a doubt.

“But we wish him well. We wish his family well in whatever their endeavors. Look, they’re always welcome back around the Nets, around us. But I think for the time being, as Mike’s mentioned to us, it’s family first. He’s enjoying his family, his wife, Laurel, and we and we wish them well.”


Centers Jeff Green and Blake Griffin are both unrestricted free agents. Despite the Nets drafting North Carolina’s 6-foot-11, 265 pound Day’Ron Sharpe in the first round, Marks said he wants to re-sign both 30-something veterans.

“I think those guys have done an amazing job for us and would love to bring them back. Love them to be around,” Marks said. “I think that’s something we’ll just have to see how everything settles next week when we’re able to really get in front of everybody and see where it settles.

“But for what those two brought to our organization, not only on the court, what you guys didn’t see is behind the scenes, both the consummate pros, amazing in the locker room and a pleasure to be around. I can’t speak high enough of either Blake or Jeff and what they [brought], not only what hopefully their time was great but our time with them and what we learned from them as well.”

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
