Brooklyn’s Current Success

Since play began in the NBA bubble, the Nets have been without Irving, and have been clicking on all cylinders. Doubts about their potential success in the bubble correlating to the absence of key contributors have been answered with their continued production on a nightly basis from new role players.

The next man up mentality has propelled the Nets into the playoffs officially clinching a playoff spot. Caris LeVert has been leading the charge scoring at will and becoming the team’s lead distributor.

Against the Clippers, LeVert tallied 27 points as he was very efficient knocking down 10 of his 17 shots to go along with his game-high 17 assists, making the case that he could be the second star for the Nets.

LeVert’s play has made it difficult to even think about a potential trade involving him. Jarrett Allen and Joe Harris have also been displaying their importance to the team throughout their key victories as well.

Would the Nets be making a mistake looking for a third star by trading away the players who have continuously demonstrated their value on the court? Look for the Nets to do their due diligence before pulling the trigger on a potential trade in the offseason in hopes of bringing a third star to Brooklyn.
