Hornets to make a play for Jarrett Allen?

Some executives around the league believe the Charlotte Hornets could make a play for him (Jarrett Allen) as they need a center and have cap space, even though he’s a restricted free agent. Some have floated out Dallas. Ultimately, I see him staying in Cleveland because they can match anything and gave up a pick to get this guy. They believe in him as the long-term future starting center and a member of their core going forward.

Pistons, Raptors, Spurs and Wizards to be interested in Jarrett Allen in free agency

Cleveland Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen will be a restricted free agent in the offseason, meaning Cleveland will have the right to match any offers the big man receives on the market. The Detroit Pistons, Toronto Raptors, San Antonio Spurs and Washington Wizards are some of the teams expected to have some level of interest in the young 7-foot rim protector, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Bobby Marks said he believes the Nets will not sign Allen to an extension but will instead wait and see how he does this season. “I would think it’s hard for me to extend him to that type of number and the other thing is if you extend these guys, you’re basically off the board for a year because of the poison pill restriction in your contract. So it’s not like he’s tradeable so I think if I’m Brooklyn and if I can get him in that $12-14 million range, I’m looking for a below-market type of deal here,” Marks added.

Harden says this is unfamiliar territory for him coming back from a significant injury and having to be patient with his offense. “My career, I’ve been blessed,” Harden said. “Just not having surgeries or whatnot. So just this whole process last year was just like frustrating and draining. … It was draining for me to know that I couldn’t be myself and be out there on the floor and be the player that I am [at the end of last season]. “But I’m finally slowly getting back to it. It just takes a lot of hard work and dedication. But it’s gonna happen. But you got to just continue to keep fighting, and I will.”
Westbrook spoke out on the testy sequence right before the buzzer sounded, via ClutchPoints’ Lakers reporter Michael Corvo: “It is what it is. I don’t think I should have gotten the first tech … If the last one was a tech, that’s cool. But, just how I play the game — I’m old school. When shit like that happens, I don’t let it slide. I’ll take it on the chin and move on.” “But in the game of basketball, there’s just certain things you don’t do,” continued the Lakers star. “Like in baseball, you don’t flip the bat. There’s certain things you just don’t do in sports. Game’s already over. And I didn’t like it, simple as that.”
