Damian Lillard reacts on Caris LeVert trade to Pacers
While the NBA world is still in shock with the Brooklyn Nets pulling off a blockbuster trade that is centered on former MVP James Harden, the other side of the trade was somehow forgotten.
In order to acquire Harden, the Nets gave up LeVert to the Indiana Pacers while Jarrett Allen was sent to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
But not Damian Lillard.
The Portland Trailblazers superstar shared his insight on the other transactions of the four-team mega trade, specifically LeVert being traded to the Pacers in exchange for Victor Oladipo.

LeVert established himself as a solid two-way player despite taking a backseat for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
The 26-year old averaged 18.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 6.0 assists for the Nets in12 games, and he is expected to gain more minutes with the Pacers.
