In mid-April as the Nets were in the midst of a playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers, a high-ranking source close to the Nets told ND that Durant was “seriously considering” the Nets. The same source discussed how Durant was intrigued by the idea of playing with Caris LeVert. LeVert said he didn’t pressure KD, but they did talk. “We have a good friendship, but I never really pressured him about it or that type of stuff. When he got hurt I reached out, kind of made sure he was OK and everything like that. But obviously he knows that he’s a great player, he knows that I would love to play with him. But I kind of left him alone with that stuff.”
Remember LeVert’s words, “Whatever happens, happens” when asked about free agency. It wasn’t said in a cryptic way, but it’s the truth. Anything can happen at any time. The Nets are in a position to get big free agents and/or make a splash trade, specifically for Anthony Davis. However, sources say that while the Nets are engaged in talks with New Orleans, they’re reluctant to give away their young, foundation pieces. That would be Caris LeVert himself. Furthermore, NetsDaily learned that despite Durant’s injury, the Nets are expected to continue their pursuit of KD next month.
But for Caris LeVert, even if Brooklyn misses out on their top targets, they can still be competitive next season. In an appearance on “The Woj Pod,” LeVert told host Adrian Wojnarowski that the Nets can build on their current roster if they miss out on the marquee names in free agency. “I think Sean [Marks] and Kenny [Atkinson] have done a great job of building this team up, and we trust them 100 percent with what they’re doing this offseason, with what they have to do with decisions they have to make,” LeVert said. “But obviously if we don’t get any free agents, we’re a young team, you know, a competitive team, we’ve built great chemistry together, we had a taste of the playoffs, we had a test of, not really failure, but we got beat. We got beat pretty bad in the playoffs, and I think it left a bad taste in our mouths, and I feel like this offseason is gonna feel a lot like last offseason where we got something to prove.”
