Spencer Dinwiddie said he sees himself in the “Draymond Green” role alongside Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant next season.
“Obviously, we don’t know who’s going to start, who’s coming off the bench. That’s with KD and Kyrie excluded, of course. But really with all of this being formed, I view myself if we’re going with the Golden State model as the Draymond Green, the glue.
“Sometimes, I get 10 boards, sometimes, I get 10 assists. Sometimes, I score a little bit more because obviously, we have a super dynamic point guard,” said Dinwiddie on ESPN’s The Jump (h/t Nets Daily).
The 27-year-old averaged 20.6 points and 6.8 assists last season.
Dinwiddie added that he wants to emulate the late-blooming career path of new coach Steve Nash.
“His basketball acumen is second to none. Multi-time MVP, one of the greatest point guards of all time, somebody that you can learn a ton from. And being in the position that I’m in, he also had the kind of career where he played some of his best basketball late. So, just a career-arc and career path that I would love to follow. So it’s a match made in heaven for me.”
