The Brooklyn Nets have had a good offseason upgrading the roster, and swingman Caris LeVert has faith that the team can compete for a place in the 2018 Eastern Conference playoffs.
Rumor Central”I feel like it’s really realistic,” LeVert told the New York Post. “Last year, we were like top seven in the East when we had all our players healthy. Just building off that momentum with the pieces we’ve added — obviously we lost a great player in Brook Lopez — but I feel with the pieces we’ve added we’ll be in that conversation.”
LeVert is hoping to have a big season after spending the summer working on his game. LeVert has dealt with foot issues during the previous three years, which forced him to rehab in the offseasons instead of concentrating on skill work.
“It was pretty discouraging,” LeVert said.
The ESPN Summer Forecast projects the Nets to finish tied with the 14th best record in the Eastern Conference for the 2017-18 NBA season.
