Coach Kenny Atkinson is undecided on whether DeAndre Jordan or Jarrett Allen will start at center after the first day of training camp.
The 31-year-old Jordan finished in the top five in offensive rebounding for five straight years before finishing 11th last season. He provides more size and girth than Allen which will help against the likes of Joel Embiid, who Allen struggled against. Sure, it’s competitive. 'Those are two competitive guys. The problem is they both played really, really well. It’s two really good players. It will evolve. It always plays itself out,' Atkinson said of Jordan and Allen. 'Those guys both know they’re competing for something.' Signs point towards Jordan and Allen splitting minutes at center this season.
