Caris LeVert 

Post#1 » by Laimbeer » Mon Mar 31, 2014 10:35 am

What kind of a prospect is he, and if he came out now would he be drafted?

but caris can actually handle the ball and he passes too. he has a more well-rounded game than cj ever has.

I suppose, but I just dont see this great buzz about his game. He got to the lane maybe once against UK. He will be a spotup shooter in the league. He isnt super quick, rather he has a long first step, and long arms.

His game to me, is reminiscent of CJ Miles, or Jeremy Lamb. And if Lamb cant get to the rack consistently in the league.. neither will Caris Levert.

I think I see some Jamal Crawford shake to him. Does anyone else see this?

I think he could be a good player, but it would be best to go back for his Jr season - he would get a chance to develop a lot more of his game with Stauskas and Robinson moving on. I think someone would take him in the second now, but would he hard to carve out playing time unless he fell into the perfect situation.

one guy he kinda reminds me of is brent barry. 6'6-6'7 thin, skilled, can catch and shoot, good passer, high iq. can run the point in a pinch. capable of running 2 man PnR from the SG position. long arms defensively, good anticipation and will get deflections, but can be physically overpowered. i don't expect him to be a great scorer but is capable of lower to mid-teens scoring seasons if given the minutes.

Jeremy Lamb might not be able to get to the rim at will, but hes definitely shown he can get to the rim in what is basically his rookie season. Caris LeVert is by far the most slept on player this year.

He should come back, his stock will only get higher once he shows he can run the point and show off all if his skills.

He is up to 6'7'', 7'1'' wingspan and looks to have added 5-10 lbs to that upper-body so probably 190 lbs or so. Leg work will come with that boot off. Big combo-guard.

Stress fracture surgery on his foot in May.

he'll get to the legs when he can. Kid's not sitting on his ass getting fat that's the important part.

Reminds me a bit of Larry Hughes.
