Could the Brooklyn Nets really part ways with Dinwiddie, LeVert, or Allen this summer?

Since the Nets drafted him nearly 4 years ago, LeVert’s skills have never been questioned, but his health unfortunately warrants quite an opposite approach, as the Michigan guard year in and year out struggles to stay on the court. This makes LeVert’s future with Brooklyn a bit difficult to predict, along with what his trade value.

Due to his inconsistent health, the Nets might hesitate to offer LeVert an expensive, long term contract after his three-year deal expires. Possibly looking to get something back for LeVert rather than just letting him walk free, the Nets might jump the gun and move him this summer.

Although Garrett Temple usually offers the team a solid boost off the bench, without LeVert Brooklyn would require an upgrade at the shooting guard spot if they wish to fulfill Irving’s championship aspirations. Injuries aside, few players possess a higher ceiling than LeVert. Equipped with an above average-jumper, game breaking athleticism, and an ability to shift over as a primary ball handler if needed, it’s not crazy for the Nets to demand a high price for LeVert despite his familiarity with Brooklyn’s surgeons and doctors.

Teams typically shy away from simply swapping players that play the same position, and with Brooklyn set to face an immediate need at the shooting guard spot if a LeVert trade occurred, keep an eye out for a possible 3-team deal exchanging LeVert for at one or two 3-and-D guys accompanied by draft pick.

Next. Jarrett Allen. dark
