Dinwiddie advises NBA players in bubble not to call 'snitch hotline'
Spencer Dinwiddie is calling for a code of secrecy among players.
Though the Brooklyn Nets guard will not take part in the season's resumption after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier in July, he offered some advice Tuesday to those who are already inside the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
"To all my fellow NBA players, don't call the snitch hotline. Don't cross the line to get Postmates," Dinwiddie told Bleacher Report's Taylor Rooks.
Dinwiddie's advice may have come too late, however. A number of anonymous tips have already been submitted to the NBA's hotline, resulting in multiple players receiving warnings for protocol violations, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Nets guard's Postmates comment may also allude to a known mishap involving Sacramento Kings big man Richaun Holmes. Holmes revealed Monday he is undergoing a mandatory 10-day quarantine after inadvertently stepping outside the campus boundaries to pick up a food delivery.
Holmes' gaffe was preceded by a since-deleted tweet from Phoenix Suns swingman Kelly Oubre Jr. on Saturday in which he suggested players could order outside food to the resort using Postmates.
