Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has finally become an adequate three-point shooter and embodies the model of the do-it-all wing of the future. Ditto for Caris LeVert. Allen Crabbe has also developed into an efficient scorer and serviceable defender on the wings.
Jarrett Allen is a hyper modern big man, capable of terrorizing opponents defensively while shooting threes and diving to the rack offensively. D’Angelo Russell has finally begun living up to the James Harden pre-draft comparisons.
But there’s still something missing. While these young players have developed into an elite unit, the Nets are pushing deep into the luxury tax and with Jarrett Allen up for restricted free agency (and a huge payday), it’s fair to wonder how stable this team is.
