Caris LeVert    G  Nets

 

 

Caris LeVert and Sean Kilpatrick have worked out with Steve Nash and Kevin Durant this summer. Nash is now the Warriors' Player Development Consultant and this was a week-long training program. LeVert has reportedly been very busy this summer and is putting his offseason to good use after he had to get over a foot fracture last summer. The addition of Allen Crabbe does hurt his playing time, but LeVert could still get 22-26 minutes even off the bench.

Caris LeVert    G  Nets

 

 

Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily said that Caris LeVert and D'Angelo Russell are seen as the only "untouchables" on Brooklyn's roster. The Nets are very high on the 22-year-old LeVert and he played well at the Summer League, averaging 16.0 points, 5.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 treys on 47.5 percent shooting. LeVert won't handle the ball too much next season with the Nets expected to start Jeremy Lin and Russell in the backcourt, but he should still be a nice source of points, steals and treys. He's a late-round flier for now and his value would jump if the Nets take the training wheels off and give him minutes in the high 20s or low 30s out of the gate.

Caris LeVert scored 23 points with one rebound, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday. He's been a little underwhelming to this point, but LeVert was terrific as a scorer in this game and he played some strong defense against Lonzo Ball late in the game. He's at his best when he's in transition or needs to use just 0-1 dribbles, so LeVert probably won't get nearly as much run as a ball-handler on a much deeper Nets team compared to last season. He's on the radar as a late-round flier in fantasy.

Caris LeVert led the Nets with 18 points in Las Vegas on Sunday, going 9-of-18 from the field with seven rebounds, three assists and just one turnover in 28 minutes. LeVert continues to show tantalizing skills, especially in transition, but he did miss all seven of his attempts from downtown tonight. He projects as a volatile fantasy option given the uncertainty in Brooklyn's rotation, now that D'Angelo Russell and DeMarre Carroll have joined the roster. We should get clarity during training camp and the preseason.

Caris LeVert scored 12 points with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes against the Hawks on Friday. It wasn't the strongest showing for LeVert and he wasn't very active on the ball, but the 29 minutes is a good sign. His outlook for next season hinges on what the Nets decide to do on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, so he'll look to make a splash the next time out. If they don't go after KCP, LeVert could be the starter at SF on opening night and is a possible late-round target in 12-team leagues.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead will play in Las Vegas Summer League. Solid. In limited playing time, LeVert was marvelous in his NBA rookie season with his quick moves and up-tempo style, so he should be a treat. The Nets won't pick until 27 in the draft and there's little competition for LeVert's playing time, so he should be all set for 24-28 minutes next season. He's a sneaky pick in fantasy around 100.

Caris LeVert scored 19 points during a win against the Bulls on Saturday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers. After setting a career-high 20 points on Thursday, LeVert almost broke it the next time out. He's almost a perfect fit for the Nets offense with how well he gets out in transition, his array of moves, and his improving jump shot. The minutes limit has been a pain in the neck, but LeVert is one of the best non-lottery picks of the 2016 draft class. He'll be a popular sleeper next year.

Caris LeVert scored a career-high 20 points in 27 minutes vs. Orlando on Thursday, making 7-of-12 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws with two 3-pointers. LeVert added four rebounds, one assist and zero turnovers during his time on the court, and this snaps an eight-game streak of single-digit scoring. The playing time wasn't great and he was up against a very lenient Magic defense, so it's hard to read much into tonight's game for rest-of-season purposes.
