Jarrett Allen, Nets has conducted extended investigative talks

If Jarrett Allen wants to stay with the Brooklyn Nets in the long run and not test the free agent market, the big man has little time to agree to terms on rookie scale expansion. The deadline for those talks is December 21, the day before the start of the 2020-21 NBA season and the Nets ’opening game against the Golden State Warriors.

According to Michael Scotto of the US TODAY SMG’s HoopsHype, the Nets and Allen “have been talking about expanding research. ”Scotto also said in his report,“ According to a league source close to Allen, he wants to stay as a long-term Net, has enjoyed learning from Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, and believes the team a competitor. ”

If the Nets and Allen did not agree to terms of expansion, the big man would then be eligible for a $ 5.66 million warrant offer in due course, which would make him a limited free agent.
