Drafted with the 20th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, LeVert ended up missing the first 20 games of the season while working his way back from a fractured foot that he suffered in college at Michigan. Once cleared in December, LeVert slowly earned more and more playing time and eventually took over as a starter, spending 26 of the 57 games he played in with the top unit. After playing roughly 25 minutes a night over the final month and half of the season, LeVert finished with a season average of 8.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists across 21.7 minutes. His three-point production improved as the year went on, but he only shot 32.1 percent from deep for the entire campaign, so that certainly needs some work in order to draw defenses out to the perimeter. He also shot just 72 percent from the free-throw line, which hurts his value in rotisserie leagues. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, the Nets brought in both Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll in trades this offseason. That complicates LeVert's path to playing time and could knock him back into a reserve role. The upside on LeVert remains high and the Nets will likely try and get him as much playing time as possible to aid in that development, but the additions of Crabbe and Carroll, as well as D'Angelo Russell, will likely limit LeVert's ability to make a tangible leap as a sophomore.

  2. Caris LeVert 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    The Nets made LeVert the No. 20 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, using the pick acquired from Indiana in the Thaddeus Young trade. While LeVert's talent is undeniable, he comes with significant health concerns after missing 35 games over the last two years due to recurring left foot injuries. That were enough to scare some teams away, but the Nets are reportedly confident that LeVert's foot issues are in the past, and he seems to be progressing toward availability for the start of the season. At 6-foot-7 with above-average athleticism and ball-handling ability, LeVert could play up to three positions next season, but shooting guard is probably his most natural fit. Brooklyn isn't exactly loaded at any backcourt position, though LeVert will have plenty of competition for minutes off the bench in the form of Sean Kilpatrick, veteran Randy Foye and fellow rookie Isaiah Whitehead. LeVert's versatility, as well as the Nets' first-round investment in him, could ultimately provide an advantage, but 2016-17 is likely to be more of a developmental year than anything else.
