[…] They’ll miss Wiggins, to be sure, but they’re confident they have enough talent to compete without him. Most importantly, they’ve found a group of guys that recognize and appreciate the value in representing their country, that want to be there.

Michigan coach John Beilein guided the Wolverines to the Final Four while Caris LeVert and Nik Stauskas were freshmen at the program, but that’s not the memory of Beilein that sticks with either Brooklyn Nets player. “I’ll always respect him because I think the first time I talked to him it was like a month or two before I went to school because I had a late recruitment,” LeVert said. “It was the first time I talked to him, and he told me, ‘We’ve got a lot of good players coming in, and you’ll probably redshirt.’ He told me that straight up, and I really appreciated him for that. He didn’t really sugarcoat anything. He could’ve told me I was going to come in and start. He could’ve told me anything just to get me to come there, but he told me straight up. He was like, ‘I think you’ll probably redshirt. We’ve got a lot of guys who I think honestly are better than you. You can come in and work for your spot, but we don’t need you as a program. We would love to have you, but we don’t need you. You’ll have to come in and work.’ I really respected that.”
