The Brooklyn Nets and Caris LeVert have agreed to terms on a three-year, $52.5-million extension, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

LeVert, 25, happened to be celebrating his birthday on Sunday, too, the same day he agreed to the extension.

The small forward was in the midst of a breakout season in 2018-19 before suffering a dislocated right foot on Nov. 12. He was miraculously able to return to the court before the end of the regular season, though, and finished the campaign with per-game averages of 13.7 points, 3.9 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals.

The Nets signing LeVert to an extension is the latest significant transaction for the organization in what’s been a busy off-season by all accounts, headlined by the signings of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
