2021 Fantasy Outlook
In January of 2021, the Nets dealt Allen to Cleveland as part of the blockbuster, multi-team deal that sent James Harden from Houston to Brooklyn. Allen then started 40 of 51 games for Cleveland and posted 13.2 points, 9.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over 30.3 minutes per contest. That production led the Cavs to sign Allen to a hefty five-year agreement this summer. That long-term deal seems to indicate that it's Kevin Love -- and not Allen -- who will lose minutes to Cleveland's new rookie, Evan Mobley. Frankly, Mobley's slight frame (7-foot, 215 pounds) will be aided by Allen's beefy presence in the post. With the 23-year-old Allen and the 20-year-old Mobley, Cleveland might be set on the block for years to come. Allen shot an impressive 61.8 percent from the field last season on 7.7 attempts per game (and 8.2 with Cleveland). He's a bruising, old-fashioned center who still has plenty of upside. Allen will yet again be a fantasy asset for any team searching for traditional big-man stats. Just don't expect giant scoring numbers, as Allen is probably the third or fourth scoring option behind Darius Garland, Collin Sexton and the rarely-healthy Love. Read Past Outlooks

Allen is also a computer enthusiast. Follow the big center on Instagram and Twitter @_bigjayy_.

College/International Summary

Jarrett Allen played college ball for one season at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2016-17, the big center provided 13.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game for the Longhorns. He appeared in and started all 33 games for UT and shot an effective 56.6 percent from the field. The Texas native recorded 12 double-doubles, including a 22-point, 19-rebound effort in a Jan. 21 loss at No. 2 Kansas. His point and rebound total in that game were both college career-highs for Allen. Allen scored 20 points or more three times. At the end of the season, Allen was named to the All-Big 12 Conference Third Team and Big 12 All-Newcomer Team. Allen also earned a spot on the Fall 2016 Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll (minimum 3.0 GPA).

Agrees to $100M deal with Cavs
CCleveland Cavaliers
August 2, 2021
Allen and the Cavaliers came to terms on a five-year, $100 million contract Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
As expected, the Cavs have a deal in place to keep the 23-year-old center around, despite taking a big man in Evan Mobley with the No. 3 overall pick in the draft. The internal belief is that Allen and Mobley can play together, and the hefty financial commitment would appear to back up that notion. Allen came over from Brooklyn early last season as part of the James Harden deal. In 51 appearances for the Cavs, Allen posted 13.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting 60.9 percent from the field.

Past Season Summaries
2020

Allen started the 2020-21 season with the Nets. He appeared in 12 games with Brooklyn, starting five contests. In 26.6 minutes per game, he averaged 11.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.6 blocks. Allen was traded to Cleveland in January. He made his team debut Jan. 20 in a win over the Nets, where he posted 12 points, 11 rebounds, four blocks, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes. Overall, in the center's 51 appearances (40 starts) with the Cavaliers, he averaged 13.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 blocks in 30.3 minutes. Between both teams, Allen recorded 25 double-doubles. In terms of NBA ranks, the fourth-year pro ranked 12th in total rebounds (631), 10th in total blocks (90) and sixth in field-goal percentage (61.8). His best performance of the season occurred as a member of the Cavaliers on Feb. 24. In the 112-96 win over the Rockets, Allen posted 26 points (10-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 18 rebounds, four blocks and two assists in 37 minutes. On April 25 against the Wizards, Allen scored a career-high 27 points.

2019

The 2019-20 season marked Allen's third in the league and third with the Nets. He set new per-game career highs in points (11.1), rebounds (9.6), assists (1.6), steals (0.6) and field-goal percentage (64.9 percent). On Nov. 25, the Texas product delivered his best performance of the season in a two-point win over the Cavaliers. In 34 minutes, Allen recorded 22 points on 9-of-10 shooting with 21 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks. That effort put him in great company, as he became one of only 40 players in the history of the Association to accumulate that statline. At season's end, Allen ranked third in the NBA in field-goal percentage, 10th in total rebounds (671), 13th in blocks (92), second in offensive rating (132.4) and 14th in win shares (8.2). Following the NBA's hiatus due to coronavirus, the Nets were one of 22 teams invited to resume the season in the Orlando bubble. Allen stepped up his game in his six of a possible eight appearances, averaging 15.7 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.2 blocks in 34.1 minutes. His best performance in the bubble was in an eight-point win over the Wizards on Aug. 2 in which Allen generated 22 points (including 10-of-10 shooting from the line), 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes. On Aug. 7, during the NBA's restart in Orlando, Allen set a new career mark with eight assists in the 119-106 victory over the Kings. In that matchup, the center also posted 17 points, 11 rebounds and a block in 36 minutes. All in all, he totaled 30 double-doubles on the season. In four playoff games against the Raptors, Allen averaged 10.3 points, 14.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.8 blocks across 33.0 minutes.

2018

Jarrett Allen has quickly developed a reputation as one of the NBA's most effective shot blockers through just two NBA seasons. During the 2018-19 season, he seized the starting center job in Brooklyn and helped Brooklyn make the postseason for the first time since 2015. Allen averaged 1.5 blocks per game in 2018-19 despite playing just 26 minutes per contest. He began the 2018-19 season with at least one rejection in each of Brooklyn's first seven games. Allen blocked at least three shots on a dozen different occasions, including a season-high six blocks against Cleveland on Feb. 13. The 22nd overall selection in 2017 also set career highs in points (10.9) and rebounds (8.4) per game and doubled his assists to 1.4 per contest. Allen does most of his offensive work around the rim. He finished the season shooting 59 percent from the field, a small improvement over his rookie season. Allen's Nets lost to the Sixers in the first round of the playoffs. Allen started all five playoff games for the Nets, averaging 11.0 points, 6.8 boards and 0.6 blocks per contest.

2017

Allen made his NBA debut in the second game of the season, scoring nine points while shooting 3-for-3 from the field and grabbing two rebounds in a win over Orlando. The 22nd overall pick would appear in 72 games - making 31 starts - and average 8.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game. He hit double-digits for the first time when he dropped 12 points along with six rebounds against Atlanta on Dec. 2. Allen would record four double-doubles on the year, the first coming in January when he notched 12 points and 11 rebounds versus Oklahoma City. He'd go on to score 13 points and a season-high 14 rebounds against Detroit on Feb. 7. Allen also dropped a peak of 20 points against the Lakers on Feb. 2. He recorded a season-high seven offensive rebounds during a 15-point, 13-rebound game against Sacramento on Mar. 1. He produced a high of five rejections against Milwaukee on Apr. 5. Allen shot .776 from the line, draining 114 of his 147 attempts. He'd also go on to lead the Nets with 144 offensive rebounds.

2017
With the way Allen has improved steadily over his three NBA seasons, it seems at this point that the only thing preventing him from taking another big step forward is DeAndre Jordan's presence on the Nets. After Jordan opted out of the Orlando bubble last season, Allen averaged 13.4 points, 13.3 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game over the course of seeding play and the Nets' brief playoff stint -- a notable uptick from his season-long line of 11.1 points, 9.6 boards and 1.3 blocks. With Jordan back from his illness and Kevin Durant set to make his Nets debut after missing all of last year, Allen will again be stuck with minutes that rarely climb out of the mid-20s. That won't stop him from averaging close to a double-double with a good number of blocks, so there's still plenty of value here for fantasy purposes -- just not as much as Allen might like with restricted free agency coming up next summer (assuming he doesn't receive an extension before this season begins). It's also worth noting that Allen's free-throw shooting has declined steadily since his rookie year, from a respectable 77.6 percent all the way down to last season's ugly 63.3 percent. If that trend holds, it'll hurt his fantasy value in category leagues.
Allen saw improvement across the board in his sophomore campaign, emerging as the Nets' full-time starting center as the team made the postseason for the first time since 2015. The former Texas one-and-done posted career-highs in points (10.9), rebounds (8.4), assists (1.4) and blocks (1.5) across 26.2 minutes per game while shooting 59 percent from the floor. While under most circumstances, the expectation would be for Allen's role to grow even more in his third season, the Nets signed center DeAndre Jordan to a four-year, $40 million contract this offseason. And with the Nets shifting from the mindset of wanting to develop young talent to being a legitimate contender in the Eastern Conference, Allen will have to earn every minute he plays this season while facing legitimate competition at center from the veteran Jordan. While it's certainly not an ideal situation for the third-year player, Allen still has the trust of and experience of working with head coach Kenny Atkinson on his side, plus built-in chemistry with Brooklyn's returning personnel, so the big man should still be in line to see minutes in the high-20s again this season.
Despite being a late-first-round selection, Allen enjoyed a strong rookie season. It got off to a somewhat slow start, as the big man averaged just 18.2 minutes across his first 50 games of the year. However, as he was slowly integrated into the rotation and gained some added comfort, Allen wound up averaging 9.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks across 24.0 minutes in his final 22 games after the All-Star break. That provided an early glimpse into what Fantasy owners can expect heading into 2018-19. Allen is set to open the year with the top unit and considering his age, upside, and the Nets' lack of premier big men, he should have every opportunity to log minutes in the upper-20's most nights. After finishing 22nd in the league in blocks per game last year while playing just 20.0 minutes per night, look for Allen to solidify his place as one of the league's best young rim-protectors. The offseason addition of Ed Davis means Allen will have some competition for playing time, but developing Allen should be the Nets' priority, and it's unlikely that Davis will be a major drag on Allen's overall role.
Allen, the 22nd overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft, is just 19 years old after spending one standout season at Texas. He averaged 13.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game as a freshman, showcasing his ability to clean the glass and protect the rim. While he still needs to get stronger and develop more as an offensive player, he's a high-upside prospect, and the Nets will likely do everything they can to push his development along during his rookie year. That said, Allen isn't exactly ready to jump into a major role right away. Coach Kenny Atkinson already announced Timofey Mozgov will start at center to open the year, meaning Allen will have to fight for reserve minutes with the likes of Quincy Acy and Trevor Booker. Allen is currently the favorite to land backup duties, but that will still restrict his overall potential as a Fantasy target. At this point, Allen is much more valuable in dynasty formats.
