Spencer Dinwiddie has become the newest Lakers signing but drama from his former team has now caught up with him after a recent report has the point guard not being happy with former head coach Vaughn.

According to HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto, Bridges and Dinwiddie “weren’t thrilled” when Vaughn focused game plans around Simmons, who has played in just 54 games over the last two seasons.

The Nets fired Vaughn this week with the team sitting in 11th in the Eastern Conference at just 21-33 through its first 54 games in the 2023-24 season.

“Behind the scenes, there were rumblings about players, including Mikal Bridges, Spencer Dinwiddie when he was on the team, and others who weren’t thrilled with Jacque Vaughn’s game plans centering around Ben Simmons, who’s been injured the vast majority of his time with Brooklyn,” Scotto said.

Simmons’ agent Bernard Lee appeared to be defending Vaughn for not throwing Dinwiddie under the bus at any point in his Nets tenure via an X post: "Question... When Spencer didnt double on the catch in Portland when everyone expected him to because thats what the plan was did JV throw anyone under he bus in his media after? In over a year did he ever? So why does he have tread marks now?"
