I know Marks has been known to have very different draft boards as compared to most draft sites (I believe it was reported that he had LeVert around 9 & Whitehead around 20), but Mitchell-Allen-Tatum is way too different to believe.

It was me that has posted that here in a few threads, I don't know if it ever has been truly leaked or in an article.

A friend of mine whose a Nets fan and is involved in sports has legitimate sauces and tells me stuff he's told from time to time. Neither of us really spread the info much more than vague mentions from time to time. Believe it if you like, but that's all I feel comfortable revealing.

Tell us more :nod:

I think that's possible. He has shown hints of having a decent 3pt shot/jumper and has some touch in the paaint with baby hooks.

Considering he can easily average 12-14 pts a game from just pnr action and lobs(he's already there right now), I think he can bump that up to 16-18 if he shoots, 3 to 5 three's a game at around 33% and gets more confident when he has the ball in the paint to shoot it, rather than pass it back out like he does now.

The Fro is now averaging 13ppg 9rpg 2blks per game on 60%FG, 63% TS and a PER of 22

This kid is trending into all star territory at a rapid pace. And he is nowhere near where he will be physically or experience wise yet. HE IS 20.

Sean Marks should be praised and revered.

IMO, a realistic prediction is 15-16 PPG that is if he can develop a consistent jumper. However, if he can develop a go to move the sky will be the limit for him.

I'm not sure he can crack 18ppg regularly. Maybe 1 year or two, but I'm not sure he gets there consistently. In addition to skill, opportunities have to be there as well.

We'll need to actively be looking for him game-in and game-out.

As an example, mourning averaged 19.2 points one year. He took 12.6 shots per game and went to the line 8x a game.

Granted pace has increased, but that's a lot of touches

Kenny keeps taking the Fro out in favor of Dudley during inbound/clutch situations yet he is one of our most clutch players :crazy:

the offensive rebound on a free throw followed by a thunder dunk was his key 4th quarter moment this year. he doesnt play like a second year guy

Its crazy.... Allen is like the forgotten man with how well so many other guys are playing.

He is so good at staying in his lane. he does his job in his role and excells at it. with some bulk he could become chandler-lite

The Nets are like a Chinese restaurant. But instead of putting free mints on the front desk, we put draft picks in the bowl.

that 2 handed dunk right down the middle of the lane. no one around him... he REALLY cranks that thing. love that attitude. reminds of kenyon/rasheed. they didnt just want the dunk/points they wanted to destroy the rim and make the opponent feel it

maybe my favoite game this year for allen highlights. 3 monster dunks with intention to h arm behind them and 2 volleyball spike blocks

Big Jay makes the highlight reel every night he's a damn good player.

Jarrett Allen is 12th in the NBA in field goal percentage (57.9) and 17th in blocks per game (1.4). He has 14 double-doubles, second-most in the league for a player 20 years old or younger behind only 2018 No. 1 draft pick Deandre Ayton. Allen is seventh in the league in dunks (86) and eighth screen assists per game (4.2).
I'll make you a Sig bet the Franks / 36 numbers this coming season will be as good as Smith's, or better.

What should be JA main focus this off season? I think he needs to become best friends with the strength and conditioning coach. He has the same frame as Whiteside when he was with the Kings and I hope he can bulk up like Miami Whiteside. Opposing bigs see him as easy to push around.
