Center Jarrett Allen, who averaged 13.4 points, 8.4 boards and 1.5 blocks as a freshman at Texas, enjoyed his workout with the Nuggets, calling them one of the “funnest” teams.
Allen also had a positive workout with the Hawks, who own the 19th pick. Denver, who owns the 13th, 49th & 51st picks, also brought in big men T.J. Leaf and Justin Patton so it does appear they are looking for some big man insurance in case they are not able to re-sign Mason Plumlee and Danilo Gallinari. Both Allen and Patton (who averaged 1.4 blocks as a freshman) would give the Nuggets a better rim protector to back up Nikola Jokic and Leaf (who shot over 46 percent from deep as a freshman) could be a possible Gallinari replacement.
