LeVert saw his collegiate career get cut short by a foot injury, which he is currently rehabbing from. When he is healthy, LeVert has the ability to play both guard spots, but he and the Nets need his foot to heal.
If LeVert recovers fully and is able to stay healthy going forward, Brooklyn may end up with the steal of the NBA draft. LeVert is a guard who can score in multiple different ways, and his height — 6-foot-7 — makes him an interesting prospect at point guard.
However, Brooklyn may give LeVert more time at shooting guard, which is why both he and Randy Foye are listed under “other options.” LeVert could see plenty of time at shooting guard, but in a pinch he could absolutely take over at point guard if necessary.
Foye is in a similar boat. He began his career as a point guard, but has largely been a shooting guard since 2010-11. Foye is likely an option as a backup shooting guard, who can come in and immediately bring a veteran presence to the floor.
Like LeVert, though, if the Nets needed Foye to run the offense, he has enough experience that he could do so. Foye is best served as a shooting guard, and that’s the spot where he will see most, if not all, of his time. But for the Nets, it’s nice knowing they have another veteran who can run the point if absolutely necessary.
