One of the reasons I'd like to put forward for Allen starting is he had such a good rapport with Levert last season. They seemed to click really well together.

I'd keep him in to start, along with Rodi, then switch to Chandler/Jordan as the game progressed. Rodi and Allen will be way faster and should be a good pairing with Irving and Caris. Then Chandler and Jordan can be more physical along with Dinwiddie and Prince controlling the tempo.

I trust Kenny will put it all together though.

Agreed, I like that lineup to start:
Kyrie
LeVert
Harris
Rodi
Allen

That's a quick and athletic lineup. On Defense, LeVert can guard the best guard. Joe can defend most SF. If Rodi continues to grow, he can definitely guard the 4 and get steals/deflections(remember end of season Det game?!) and Allen controls the paint.

On Offense, Kyrie and LeVert are the ball handlers/iso guys with Harris and Rodi alternating between spotting up and slashing/cutting. Allen x Kyrie/LeVert running PnRs, dump of passes etc.

That's really exciting!

Against bigger teams like the sixers/jazz/denver, Jordan/Chandler/Prince prob gets more mins.

Nets Sign DeAndre Jordan ($40 million/4 years)

DeAndre says he loves the Nets culture and taking subway rides.

The addition of Jordan, Durant, and Kyrie Irving (fellow vegan and Beyond Meat investor) to the Nets has suddenly made the team one of the most exciting in the NBA, and definitely more dynamic than their crosstown rivals, the Knicks.
The Knicks had tried to attract top talent, but failed spectacularly during free agency this summer. Jordan, who spent the last months of the 2018-2019 playing for the Knicks, said that the culture the Brooklyn Nets have been building has been attractive. "Not to knock the culture the Knicks are creating," he said, "but we like what [Nets coach] Kenny [Atkinson]'s doing and [general manager] Sean [Marks]'s been awesome and the organization, from top to bottom, has been great. So you want to be a part of something like that, especially when you have a chance to play with other great players and build something."

The 6'11" Houston native is embracing his new town. "I love that you can walk everyone," Jordan enthused. "I've become a huge fan of the subway, even though I've gotten lost... well, not lost, but went the wrong direction on the subway a couple of times."

Jordan has previously linked his interest in going vegan to being conscious of his body as an athlete. He told CloseUp360, "For me, I care about my body, so whatever I put in it, I want it to be good to where I want to produce that. I'm a true believer in whatever I put in my body, that's what I'm going to produce."

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

Excited for Jordan... our backup unit will no longer have to rely on isolation from dinwiddie. Davis was ana wesome teamamte and rebounded well but offensively he coudlnt operate in the pick and roll. when alen went to the bench it made us so much easier to gaurd.

Jordan is a shell of what he was, but he can still screen and roll and is always a dunk threat underneath

And hopefully he can help on the defensive glass. I feel like we have up way too many offensive rebounds last season.

DeAndre is going to be a fun addition to the culture.

Seems like he'll fit right in.

The thing is, we're not asking him to do much. rebound, get a block or two, and finish on those in the lane catches.

Jarrett Allen is heading into year 3 and I think Claxton is going to really surprise some folks. his skillset with his measurements is kind of crazy tbh, how we ended up with him in round 2 i dunno.
