LeVert, who has been ruled out indefinitely as he deals with the medical issue, spoke to reporters on Tuesday, explaining that if not for the trade, his medical condition likely wouldn’t have been discovered as soon as it was. “I didn’t have any symptoms. As you know, I was playing in games. I hadn’t missed any games this season yet,” LeVert said. “I was feeling 100 percent healthy, so in a way this trade definitely showed and revealed what was going on in my body. “I’m definitely looking at it from that side and definitely humbled to know that this trade could have possibly saved me in the long run.”

A federal grand jury in Lexington returned an 11-count indictment against the 35-year-old Randolph Morris, who played at the University of Kentucky from 2004 to 2007, before entering the National Basketball Association (NBA), where he played until 2010. Morris is accused of submitting false income information to the Kentucky Department of Revenue for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 tax years, when he played for the Beijing Ducks. The alleged failure to report any of his earnings from his Chinese team during those years deprived the state of Kentucky of more than $400,000 in tax revenue.
