After attempting just 15 three-pointers in his rookie season, Allen is reportedly shooting 50-100 three-pointers each day during offseason practice. A rapid jump in production from beyond the arc still shouldn't be expected, however, as it'll be wise to wait and see if coach Kenny Atkinson actually allows his 6-foot-11 center to play that far away from the rim on a regular basis. Nevertheless, improved versatility from Allen will at least help to make a case for more playing time than the 20 minutes he averaged last season.
Allen had 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds and one block in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 109-102 summer league loss to Houston.
Allen was in action for the second consecutive summer league game, finishing with a double-double in just 23 minutes of playing time. He is poised to assume a much larger role this season as the likely starter heading into opening night. His offense will likely be a working progress, however, he demonstrated the ability to be an elite shot blocker across the back end of last season. Owners are likely going to have to spend a mid-round pick on the promising sophomore.
Allen posted 8 points (3-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds and five blocked shots across 26 minutes in Monday's 78-69 loss to the Timberwolves in a Vegas Summer League contest.
Allen finally saw action after being held out of the first two games in Las Vegas, The 20-year-old is poised to play a key role in Brooklyn's 2018-19 campaign after a promising rookie season. If he continues to play he'll likely continue to put up good numbers, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Nets sit their valuable youngster to avoid injury.
Allen will not play Friday against Orlando, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Allen is with the team in Vegas and was spotted on the bench, but the Nets will hold him out of the opener on a precautionary basis. The expectation remains that Allen will play in at least one game in Vegas, but it appears as though the Nets will take it easy with arguably their best young asset.
