“I believe they have telegraphed they intend to use some of their young talents to acquire a third star along with Kyrie and Durant. Now, we can enter a healthy debate here about whether Caris LeVert is that third star and they make the decision that he is,” said ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, according to RealGM

Caris LeVert is scoring at a stable form with 17.7 PPG. LeVert supports well to Kyrie’s gameplan sense and rotates the ball around well with around 4.1APG. This makes him a definite contender to be the third star for Nets. And form a strong trio with Kyrie and Kevin as young talent.
