At the talented and promising guard, who moved from the Nets to Indiana in the huge trade, a tumor was discovered in one of his kidneys in his body • Despite the long absence, the Pacers decided to keep him • "Thank you for their support," the excited Lavbert said
Despite everything, he will stay with the Pacers
Indiana and Chris Labert have received sad news in the last day after the talented guard, who only a few days ago moved in the huge trade from Brooklyn to the ranks of the Pacers, was suddenly discovered to have a tumor in one of his kidneys in his body.
Meaning: Everett, who has suffered repeated injuries in recent seasons, is sitting out of basketball again, and this time for an unknown time, a fact that did not deter Indiana captains, who decided the slingshot would just stay on the team.
As you may recall, Lavbert was transferred to Indiana as part of the square trade in which James Harden moved to the Brooklyn Nets.
The star who arrived in place of Victor Oladipo, who did the opposite for the Rockets, underwent a series of tests ahead of the premiere that was scheduled for the weekend, but then the alarming finding was revealed.
As mentioned, the 26-year-old Labrador, who was selected in the 20th draft of 2016 by the same Indiana who then handed him over to the Hunts, received a signal of reassurance from the Pacers, who decided not to cancel the deal and leave Labbert at the club.
"I thank the Pacers for their support," the talented U.S. media guard said. "My family and I thank them for the MRI scans and for all the thoroughness involved.
I look forward to joining the group as soon as possible. "
