    DeAndre Jordan got the start over Jarrett Allen against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Jordan wound up playing 25 minutes to Allen's 23 in what is likely to be an even timeshare regardless of who starts. Jordan finished the game with five points, seven boards, three dimes, three blocks and a steal. Allen finished with four points, seven boards, four blocks and a steal. They both will have value, but the timeshare caps both men's upside.

    Jarrett Allen was perfect from the field on Friday night as he posted 12 points, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 20 minutes en route to the victory.

    Allen basically split time with the recently-acquired Deandre Jordan who had 19 minutes off the bench with 11 poins and eight rebounds on 4-for-4 shooting. It will be interesting to see how the Nets handle this timeshare but it can't really help either take a big jump this season.

    Kenny Atkinson admitted that he doesn't usually play the "matchup game" but does expect to do it this year with Jarrett Allen and DeAndre Jordan.

    That's not at all surprising, as it simply makes the Nets a better team. Allen predictably struggled against Joel Embiid in the playoffs and isn't strong enough to crash and bang with the real giants of the league. Expect Jordan to take the lead against guys like Embiid this year. It makes things a little more predictable night-to-night but the timeshare is a negative for both players' fantasy value overall. Allen remains the preferred play because of his shot-blocking ability, while Jordan is only a late-round pick at best.

    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.

    Kenny Atkinson wouldn't commit to a starting center regarding the Jarrett Allen or DeAndre Jordan decision he has looming.

    Atkinson did mention that Jordan told him he'll do whatever is needed to win. Allen would seem to be the better bet to start at this point, but they're probably looking at a pretty even timeshare. While Jordan was on the Knicks, he started and played about the same 26 minutes that Allen did on the Nets this past season.

    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson is non-committal on who he expects to be his starting C next season between DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen, while also relaying that Jordan is comfortable with doing whatever the team needs.

    It's early July, and the team has two capable starting Cs on the roster, so a decision will likely come after coach Atkinson can evaluate the team in the preseason and during practices. The added tidbit that Jordan is comfortable coming off the bench may play a role in the team's decision, but this is likely to be a fluid situation all season.

    The Nets have announced the signing of DeAndre Jordan.

    Jordan is set to earn $40 million over the next four seasons. He's a nice complement to Jarrett Allen up front as a big body who can hold his own against large centers and grab rebounds by the handful, though we're skeptical that the 10-year vet will be able to outplay Allen consistently. Beyond that, Jordan is an excellent locker room presence that should help shepherd a young team that just had its world rocked by superstar additions. How Kenny Atkinson splits the minutes between Jordan and Allen will determine their fantasy outlooks, and a true timeshare or hot hand approach would drastically limit the appeal of both.

    DeAndre Jordan has agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal with the Nets.

    Brooklyn got commitments from Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan tonight, making them the clear winners of free agency (on paper). This deal will take Jordan through age-34, and he'll likely split the center minutes with Jarrett Allen. It's going to hurt the fantasy prospects of both players but the Nets will no longer be overmatched against big-bodied centers and have someone who can tilt the rebounding scales in their favor. Both Irving and Durant are reportedly taking small paycuts to get Jordan his $10 million annually, which is a nice start in terms of team-building. Michael Scotto of The Athletic is reporting that the deal is fully guaranteed, so there are no options at play.

    The Nets are expected to sign free agent C DeAndre Jordan once free agency opens, in addition to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

    As Woj puts it, the Nets are making a clean sweep right as free agency opens with their new three-headed monster. Whether Durant returns around playoff time or takes a full year off is anyone's guess, but this team is going to be fun to watch. Jordan should be in line for the lion's share of center minutes over Jarrett Allen, though exactly how the two split time remains to be seen.

    Kyrie Irving will give the Nets a formal commitment when free agency opens, per Marc Stein, with the Nets still "aggressively pursuing" Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan.

    Brooklyn is hoping that Irving is enough to attract Durant and Jordan — who is Durant's close friend. The Nets are still armed with one max contract slot even after accounting for Irving, and they'll be able to put it to good use with Durant's decision coming tonight. Either they land KD or they can quickly pivot to snap up second and third-tier free agents.

    The Lakers are expected to try and find a way to sign DeAndre Jordan, per a report from ESPN.

    Jordan apparently has an interest in playing in Los Angeles again, and while he's also being courted by the same teams pursuing his good friend Kevin Durant (i.e. the New York teams), it's possible that the setup in L.A. is more appealing. Jordan would probably have to take a pay cut, but it's possible that he suits up for the Lakers if they decide to spend their money on multiple players rather than one max guy. All eyes are on L.A. this summer.

    Sam Amick of The Athletic is reporting that the Rockets are considering Danny Green, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jeremy Lamb, Brook Lopez, DeAndre Jordan and Kevon Looney as possible targets in free agency.

    Houston is focused on completing a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler but those players, either as cheap depth around the new Big Three or as fallback options, are all good fits. There's a ton of balls in the air at this point but it's clear that the Rockets are prepared to shake things up and are planning to cover their bases at every position.

    According to Marc Stein of the NY Times, the Nets are exploring the possibility of signing DeAndre Jordan, Kevin Durant's close friend, with the hopes that his addition will make Brooklyn a more enticing spot for Durant.

    Stein went on to state that the Knicks, who are also in the Durant race, are still interested in re-signing Jordan. The Nets are the favorites to land Kyrie Irving right now and his addition will undoubtedly make them a more attractive option so if they could also manage to poach Jordan away from the Knicks, they'd have two of Durant's good friends on the same team. Although he'll likely miss the entirety of next season, Durant is still garnering quite a market and the Nets look to be getting more and more aggressive as July 1 nears.

    The Lakers have reportedly shown interest in DeAndre Jordan.

    Jordan is in a strange spot, entering his decline at a position that is increasingly looking for more versatile skillsets than he has to offer but still good enough to command a large-ish paycheck. It's unlikely that he gets a big deal from the Lakers, as it means they'll have failed to spend their money elsewhere, but he'd fit as a lob threat and rebounder. His fantasy stock should be fairly predictable as long as he doesn't end up in a timeshare situation.
