When they're playing well is when their trade value is usually at the highest, though

Agreed. He was rotating, and switching on most everything, while still able to get back. He showed some solid mobility as if he was a PF instead of a center. It was great to see.

I wonder if the coaches have told him something like "We're not going to play you so hard you have to crawl to the sidelines, so just give us everything you have while you're on the court. We'll rest you when you get tired, and you will earn more playing time with more effort."

Good question. Another thing I’ve noticed since Levert’s return is more substitution. Instead of seeing a guy play 9 minutes straight in the first, we’re seeing more of 4.5minute runs, with getting rest in the middle. It just seems like guys are better rested and playing with more force and energy when they’re on the court.
