Wilson and Levert reunite, top players for their teams

D.J. Wilson and Caris Levert were both in action together for the first time in over a year and a half again, and were two of the best players on the floor.

While nine players have left John Beilein’s program at Michigan early to enter the NBA, their pro careers haven't been as productive as expected.

On Sunday, whether it was a summer league game or not, D.J. Wilson and Caris Levert were two of the best on the court.

In the Las Vegas Summer League on Sunday, the Milwaukee Bucks topped the Brooklyn Nets by a final score of 88-83, while Wilson and Levert were on top of their games.

Wilson was effective from the floor for the second straight game in multiple ways, going 6-for-13 from the field and totaling 16 points for the game. He also recorded six rebounds, two blocks, a steal and an assist in 30 minutes of action.

He knocked down two of the five 3-pointers that he attempted in the contest. For Levert, that was the only downside to his day.

The former Michigan guard went 9-for-18 from the floor (18 points) but was 0-for-6 from beyond the arc. Levert snagged seven rebounds and tossed three assists in his 28 minutes of action.

Both Wilson and Levert were starters for their teams. Levert’s 18 points were the top for his team, while Wilson was second to Rashad Vaughn’s 33-point afternoon.

The highlight of the day between the two ex-Wolverines was when Wilson guarded Levert along the perimeter and Levert drove to the hoop and scored while being fouled by Wilson for the and-one bucket.

Wilson has now scored in double-figures for both of his first two games in the summer league.

Milwaukee and Brooklyn will be back in action tomorrow night.

The Nets will matchup with New Orleans at 6 p.m. (ET) on ESPNU. The Bucks will take on the Los Angeles Clippers at 10 p.m. (ET) on ESPN2.
