Kevin Durant believes that Caris LeVert can be the "perfect" third star for the Nets.
"I think Caris is that perfect guy for us," said Durant when asked if LeVert can be Brooklyn's third star. "Any given night he could lead us in scoring or assists. He can control the offense. We can go to him in the post in a matchup. I feel like he has the tools to do everything on the basketball court." With an endorsement like that from a player with as much pull in Brooklyn's organization as KD, it would be shocking to see LeVert traded away this offseason, although that likely won't stop the inevitable trade rumors.
