Caris LeVert finds ‘freedom’ in leading role
Oft-forgotten guard to be Nets' first option in Orlando
When you’re on a roster that features two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant, six-time All-Star Kyrie Irving and Nets’ leading scorer and assists man Spencer Dinwiddie, it’s easy to be overlooked.
That won’t be the case anymore for Brooklyn guard Caris LeVert.
At least not during the NBA’s much-anticipated restart in Orlando, Florida later this month.
With the Nets’ once-formidable lineup decimated by injuries, positive tests for COVID-19 and players who have opted out of the season due to concerns about the league’s bubble environment at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, LeVert has suddenly emerged as Brooklyn’s go-to option.
