Spencer Dinwiddie could potentially be great for the Lakers, but adding him in free agency won’t be easy.

Spencer Dinwiddie reportedly wants to come home to Los Angeles in free agency this summer. While that could theoretically mean the Lakers or the Clippers, obviously there is only one of those possibilities that is very intriguing for the denizens of this community. So on today’s episode of “The Lakers Lounge” — a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll — co-hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin dug into whether or not the Lakers could actually add the veteran point guard and L.A. native.

Could the Lakers actually sign Dinwiddie given their limited cap flexibility? Would he really be a fit for the purple and gold? Anthony and Harrison tried to dig into all those questions before Harrison ran some of his best (and worst) ideas on how to get Dinwiddie to the Lakers past Anthony.

Then, after discussing all of that, Harrison and Anthony talked about the latest rumors about Jason Kidd being “a prime candidate” for the Dallas Mavericks’ open head coaching job, and the possible motivations for former Mavs coach Rick Carlisle going to bat for his former point guard to get that gig. Do they buy Carlisle’s reasoning, or is he just trying to set the Mavericks on fire on his way out of the building as he departs for the Indiana Pacers?

Finally, to wrap up the show, Anthony and Harrison mocked the idea that Lakers fans are in any way obligated to root for the Clippers now that their own team has been eliminated.
