Brooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen had his 2020-2021 team option picked up by the organization on Monday. He's been alternating starts at the center position with DeAndre Jordan during the preseason. This could be something that happens in the regular season as well. Regardless, Allen should see around 20 minutes per game whether he's starting or coming off the bench. He'll be worth targeting late in most drafts.
Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving played just one minute during preseason play in China against Los Angeles after he was forced to leave early as a result of an inadvertent shot to the face from Lakers guard Rajon Rondo. Irving suffered a facial fracture during an offseason pickup game and was observed sporting a mask in this one. His status is unknown moving forward, but for those who have drafted already, this is a cause for concern.
Brooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen will be given the start at center for Friday's preseason contest. Allen has been playing with the starters over DeAndre Jordan in practice. He's shown flashes of being a capable and reliable starting center in the NBA. Head coach Kenny Atkinson may mix it up throughout the season, but it appears Allen has the edge over Jordan right now. Allen is someone worth targeting in the middle of most drafts.
Newly acquired Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant (Achilles) will not be playing this season, according to general manager Sean Marks. Durant tore his Achilles in the NBA Finals last year, but was rumored to make a possible return to the court at some point this upcoming season. Marks shot down this possibility, stating Durant would not be playing this season in order to rehab the injury. Without Durant, Taurean Prince, Caris Levertand Wilson Chandler (suspension) will likely have extra minutes at the three. Durant can be avoided in standard leagues this season.
The Brooklyn Nets have signed power forward Henry Ellenson to a two-way contract. Ellenson's first three NBA seasons -- split between the Pistons and Knicks -- have largely been disappointments, and he finished last season with an average of six points and 3.5 rebounds per game in just 19 appearances. A two-way deal will limit how much time Ellenson is able to spend on an NBA roster, which means most of his season will be spent with Brooklyn's G-League affiliate in Long Island. Any value Ellenson may have had if he'd signed an actual NBA contract has evaporated with this move.
