So, what about the other players on the Nets?

The Nets have a seven-man rotation due to all of their injuries.  After LeVert, three-point specialist Joe Harris led the team with 14.5 points per game this season over 69 contests.

Harris is deadly from three-point land, nailing 42.4% of his shots this season.  Just don’t expect him to do much more than that, or play any semblance of defence.

More from Toronto Raptors

Tyler Johnson was signed and brought into the bubble, where he chipped in 12 points per game while averaging 24.3 minutes.  Veteran Jamal Crawford was also brought in to help out, but played just six minutes before injuring his hamstring.  If he can get healthy, Crawford is instant offence off of the bench.

Centre Jarret Allen played excellent in his six games in the bubble, putting up 15.7 points per game.  The 21-year-old was a net plus-14 in his time on the floor and gobbled up 11 board per game.  He is a promising young piece for the Nets in the future.

Frenchman Timothe Luwanu-Cabarrot is on his fourth NBA team since entering the league in 2016-17.  TLC has impressed with his opportunity for more minutes in the bubble.

Luwanu-Cabarrot has averaged nearly 15 points per game in Orlando, with three 20-plus point games.  He has given the Nets reason to look at him in their plans.

The cupboard gets bare after that, with Justin Anderson, Rodions Kurucs, Dzanan Musa, Donta Hall, Jeremiah Martin and Lance Thomas battling for minutes.  If you know who any of these guys are, you win a prize.
