Allen Offers Defense, Rebounding, & More
Jarrett Allen has a perfect frame to be successful in the NBA. He is 6-foot-10, has a 7-foot-5 wingspan, and a 9-foot-1 standing reach to go with his 35.5-inch vertical leap. From a physical standpoint, Allen checks every box that Head Coach Kenny Atkinson looks for in a prospect.
“I’m always on Sean (Marks). We need speed and skill and versatility,” Atkinson said during Allen’s welcome press conference on Friday. “It sounds like we are talking about a guard, but that’s the thing that really stood out about Jarrett was how fast he was, versatile he was, what a good passer he was, his skill level.”
