Damian Lillard was asked about the players he believes they are going to take a big leap next season. The Portland Trail Blazers superstar went with Caris LeVert or Lonzo Ball.

LeVert had a great stint with the Brooklyn Nets in the Orlando bubble, as he led the team to the first round of the playoffs with impressive performances.

While LeVert is a great talent, the Nets are going to have Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving at their disposal next season. On the other hand, the Pelicans and Lonzo Ball had a string of disappointing play in the NBA season restart.

Ball wasn’t his usual self shooting a horrendous 30% from the field and averaging just seven points and six assists in the seeding games.
