Summary:

Jarrett Allen is a tall, physical big man that will operate in the post to garner points and rebounds for his team.  He can score on strong moves to the hoop to get buckets in the paint.  However, he rarely looks to take jumpers or shots from further out, and he can be quite turnover and foul prone in games.​

Right now, Allen may be more of a project player than anticipated.  If he can show teams that he can be a consistent performer, he could be a lock to be a lottery pick for the 2017 NBA Draft.
