The Sky Is The Limit For Nets’ Center Jarrett Allen

Thanksgiving-time featured another Allen appearance, this time at a supermarket in Jackson Heights, a neighborhood in Queens. Allen, who admittedly doesn’t have much experience preparing dinner, gave $70 to 25 kids so they could shop for Thanksgiving while also learning how to manage a budget.

More recently, Allen teamed up with a few kids from 4-H for an engineering challenge: the group worked to build wearable fitness monitors from scratch which recorded steps, heart rate and temperature.

The Future Is Bright

For this season, Jarrett Allen gets a B-plus or maybe even an A-minus, and that’s because he made more of an impact than most expected. He’s still got three years left on his rookie scale contract, with the last two being team options. He’ll continue to improve, making it a no-brainer for ownership to pick those up. Although Allen has a tremendous way to go concerning his offense, he’s not close to where his ceiling is. The most significant thing going forward is developing a post move or two so that he doesn’t become a detriment.
