One of the most sought-after assistants during this past offseason, Allen opted to remain on Erik Spoelstra’s bench, where he’s furthering his graduate education. Whether it’s putting together a scouting report or patiently counseling Heat players on how to exploit the margins of the game, Allen has assumed an enormous workload in Miami, something the organization both demands from its staff and admires specifically about Allen.
According to those he has worked with in Detroit and Miami, Allen spends a lot of time not only on the granular details of X’s & O’s, but also thinking about the more holistic needs of “the whole” — judiciously weighing the needs of every player, staffer and the organization. It’s this range of qualities that inspires those peers to believe Allen has a very promising chance to succeed in the first chair.
