The 28-year-old Columbus, Ohio native discovered an open watch case in his bedroom during the festivities and the rare Peugeot timepiece was missing. TMZ reports that police were told someone was seen entering LeVert’s bedroom earlier in the evening.
The case is reportedly under investigation by the LAPD. Department spokespeople did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment early Thursday morning.
LeVert – a relative of O’Jays singer Eddie LeVert – is a significant rotation player for the Cavs, averaging 30.2 minutes, 12.1 points, 3.9 assists and 3.8 rebounds en route to a playoff berth for Cleveland. The Cavaliers were ultimately bounced in the first round by the New York Knicks.
The former University of Michigan star is just the latest athlete to be robbed in Los Angeles.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green’s LA-area home was reportedly looted of more than $1 million worth of watches, jewelry and other items during Super Bowl LVI in 2022 weeks after a pair of British Supercross athletes were robbed at gunpoint in Hollywood.
Previously, former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig’s home was burglarized while playing in Houston during the 2017 World Series, but that same crew was caught fleeing Los Angeles Rams receiver Robert Woods’ home the following year.
Four arrests were made in the case: Tyress Lavon Williams, 19; Damaji Corey Hall, 18; and Jshawne Lamon Daniels, 19.

Police believe the crew were also responsible for several other celebrity home burglaries, and said they found a list containing the names and addresses of more than a dozen athletes, musicians and actors the teens planned to burglarize.
A search warrant of their home uncovered more than $50,000 in cash, plus watches, jewelry and designer purses.
Captain Lillian Carranza, with the Los Angeles Police Department Commercial Crimes Division, said during a press conference in 2018 that the crew picked their victims by studying their touring and travel schedules and watching their social media postings.
‘The burglars believed no one would be home, and the homes would contain sought after valuables that they might be interested in,’ she said.
