LeVert scored 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding nine rebounds and eight assists in 35 minutes during Monday's preseason win over the Pistons.
With D'Angelo Russell was firing it up from three-point range, LeVert handled primary distribution duties for the Nets -- in fact, no other Brooklyn player had more than three assists on the night. The 24-year-old averaged 4.2 assists a game last season, more than doubling his rookie performance in that category, but that number could rise still further in 2018-19.
LeVert scored 15 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four steals, two assists and a rebound in 21 minutes during Wednesday's preseason loss to the Knicks.
The 24-year-old looked good while the Nets ran with a smaller lineup, a situation he could thrive in during the regular season even if it comes off the bench and not as a starter. Levert scored a career-high 12.1 points per game last season, but he has the scoring talent for more if he gets a chance.
LeVert will pick up the start in Wednesday's preseason opener against the Knicks, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
The Nets are set to be without starting power forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (hip), so they'll go with a smaller lineup that features D'Angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe, LeVert, DeMarre Carroll and Jarrett Allen. Once Hollis-Jefferson is healthy, one of Crabbe, LeVert and Carroll will shift to the bench, though who exactly it will be is uncertain at this point in time. Even if LeVert is eventually forced to come off the bench, the Nets love his upside and think he can play three different positions, so that should keep him on the floor for a significant amount of minutes all year.
