Atkinson: Jarrett Allen Offers Speed, Skill, Versatility & Is A ‘Perfect System Fit’

Allen would be a good fit along Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, who isn’t the ideal paint protector at the four, and he would be incredible running the pick-and-roll. Where he stands to make the most impact is in transition. He is great at running the floor and was usually rewarded for it at Texas. Lin, Russell and Caris LeVert will have no problem rewarding him at the next level, too.

Jarrett Allen is the type of player that could grow into being one of the cornerstones of the future. He has all the physical tools to be great, is intelligent, and seems to be like the perfect personality to fit in with this eclectic group of players and fanbase. If he applies himself this summer, he could be ready to make an impact in the fall.
