Kevin Durant recently praised Caris LeVert, saying that the 26-year-old wing could complement himself and Kyrie Irving as the third star of the Nets.
“I think Caris is that perfect guy for us to, any given night he can lead us in scoring or lead us in assists or he can control the offense or we can go to him in the post in a matchup,” said KD appearing on a podcast with Ian Begley of SNY. Levert averaged 18.7 points and 4.2 rebounds last season, finishing the season strong and leading the Nets to the playoffs. And even though this is an impressive endorsement from KD, it’s likely that the Nets explore a trade for the young guard in the offseason in their effort to add a top name next to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
