    The Nets have exercised their contract options on Jarrett Allen and Dzanan Musa.

    No surprises here, with both players expected to play important roles down the line (Allen is already) to complement Brooklyn's new superstar core. Allen is a decent target in the late-middle rounds, even if he has to split time with DeAndre Jordan, while Musa is only a dynasty option this season.

    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.

    Mitchell Robinson, Jarrett Allen, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Brandon Clarke and Kendrick Nunn have been named to the Summer League First Team.

    Robinson averaged 13.8 points, 10.6 rebounds and 3.4 blocks in only 25.2 mpg in Vegas, and the hype train will continue to roll. Allen had a slow start to his Summer League but came around to dominate as a player of his caliber should. Alexander-Walker and Clarke showed out for the rookie class, with NAW finishing third in scoring at 24.3 points per game. Nunn put up 21.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.5 steals in his summer session and will look to crack the backcourt rotation in Miami this year.

    Jarrett Allen fell down hard on his hip after grabbing a rebound on Sunday and will not return to the game after suffering a contusion.

    Allen has been a beast all Summer League so it's a shame to see him leave the game on this note. He ends three quarters of action with a 15-point, 14 rebounds, double-double, adding one assist and two blocks on 7-of-12 shooting.

    Jarrett Allen obliterated the Pistons in Saturday's 105-85 win, scoring 30 points and adding 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

    The first question to ask is why was he out there tonight? Jarrett Allen is unquestionably a starter for just about any team and showed that he is a double-double monster in tonight's beat down against the Pistons frontcourt. However, with the signing of DeAndre Jordan the Nets have a difficult decision to make this season as they both posses similar skill sets. The Nets already know what they are getting from Allen and his Summer League performance has done nothing more than solidify this. The next question to answer is whether he has done enough to get the nod or if this question will linger further into the preseason.

    Jarrett Allen returned to Summer League action on Wednesday, posting a 14-point, 13-rebound double-double to go along with two blocks in 32 minutes.

    Allen has proven over the last couple of seasons that he doesn’t really belong in Summer League from a talent point of view. The big man has an arduous fantasy season ahead of him with the likely log jam he’ll face at center with DeAndre Jordan in town.

    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.

    Jarrett Allen will sit out Monday's Summer League game.

    Although Allen sustained a right thumb injury last week, today's absence is just a matter of rest. He's healthy after playing in two straight games and the Nets simply don't need him to suit up in Vegas.

    Rodions Kurucs scored 15 points in Sunday's win over Croatia, going 6-of-8 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers in 23 minutes of work.

    Kurucs did what he should've against inferior competition, and it's going to be an important season for him with Kevin Durant looming in the distance. Kurucs needs to put his stamp on a rotation spot this year before things get even more crowded down the line. Jarrett Allen struggled a bit with four points on 1-of-5 shooting but did add seven boards, a steal and two blocks. Dzanan Musa grinded his way to 15 points despite shooting 3-of-10 overall. We'll see how the Nets fare against NBA competition in their next game.

    Jarrett Allen notched a team-high 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, adding eight boars, three dimes, one steal and three blocks vs. the Mavs on Friday.

    Allen was easily able to bully the Mavs' young guns and pretty much powered his way to a dominant performance in the paint. We've never doubted his ability to stomp on easy prey, it's the matchups against the bigger, more robust big men that he needs to work on.

    Jarrett Allen (right thumb) is available for Friday's Summer League opener.

    Allen's injury was said to be minor, but it's good to see him out there just the same. We're hoping that the third-year center dominates the competition in Vegas, as frankly he's too good to have anything left to prove at this level. Perhaps he'll show us more of the 3-pointer he said he's been working on.
