    Getty Jarrett Allen and Darius Garland of the Cleveland Cavaliers. For the vast majority of the first half of the NBA season, the Brooklyn Nets held the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. But Kyrie Irving’s inability to play home games at Barclays Center, Kevin Durant’s MCL sprain, and James Harden’s pending trade request, had the Nets in a downward spiral, to the tune of an 11-game losing streak. The Nets ended the season on a high note, securing a 4-game winning streak, but they were unable to avoid the play-in tournament, and thus will have to secure one more win before they can officially say that they have clinched a playoff berth.

    Getty George Hill was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers just hours before Thursday's trade deadline. Heading into the 2021 NBA Playoffs the Brooklyn Nets were presumed as the favorites to win the NBA Finals. With Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden leading the way for Brooklyn, the Nets were in prime position to make a legit run at the title. The Nets ran through a turbulent first-round series with the Boston Celtics as they won the series in five games. However, injuries would affect their second-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks as both Irving and Harden suffered injuries that forced them both to miss time in the series.

    Getty Nets center Jarrett Allen at Barclays Center. Cleveland Cavaliers big man Jarrett Allen was a major piece involved in the blockbuster trade that brought James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets.

    Getty Cleveland's Jarrett Allen warms up before a game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on January 29, 2021 in New York City. Jarrett Allen began the 2020-21 season starring for the Brooklyn Nets, clogging lanes as a defensive-minded center who also provided a spark on the other end of the floor.

    The Nets filled one of their three open roster spots Friday by preparing to sign free-agent big man Norvel Pelle. The deal – which will be completed pending clearance of the NBA’s Health and Safety protocols – was first reported by ESPN and confirmed by The Post. Pelle will have to repeatedly test negative for COVID-19 before he can join the Nets. Since trading away center Jarrett Allen last week in the four-team blockbuster deal for James Harden, DeAndre Jordan has been the starter by default with no true center to back him up or push him. Brooklyn has been sorely lacking in size, shot-blocking and interior defense. GM Sean Marks bringing in the 6-foot-10, 231-pound Pelle should at least help in all three areas, especially rim protection. Pelle averaged 3.0 rebounds, 2.4 points and 1.3 blocks in 9.7 minutes over 24 games last season with the 76ers.

    Jarrett Allen doesn’t fault the Brooklyn Nets for trading him for superstar shooting guard James Harden. The Brooklyn Nets let it be known in the summer of 2019 that they were all-in on competing for an NBA championship after they signed Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency. However, there was speculation that the team could add James Harden to form their own big-three a la the Miami Heat in the 2010’s. As it turns out, the deal came to fruition last week after acquiring the disgruntled star from the Houston Rockets in a four-team trade that also included the Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers. To ensure the trade went through, the Nets had to surrender multiple first-round draft picks and key depth players. One of the athletes to be traded was big-man Jarrett Allen, who had been with the team since they selected him in the first-round of the 2017 NBA Draft. Now a member of the Cavaliers, Allen reflected on his time with the Nets and revealed that he doesn’t blame the team for trading him for Harden....

His time in Brooklyn was over. © Provided by HoopsHype “It was definitely rough on me,” Allen said. “Even though you say it’s the business of basketball, it never makes it easier.

    After months of serious negotiation, the Brooklyn Nets have finally acquired James Harden from the Houston Rockets, fulfilling their dream of adding a third star that would help Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving carry the team in the 2020-21 NBA season. However, the four-team blockbuster deal left the Nets with a shallow frontcourt depth, especially after they lost Jarrett Allen to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Luckily, though they could no longer afford to trade for an All-Star caliber center, there are plenty of quality big men that Brooklyn could get for a cheap price before the 2021 trade deadline. In a recent article, Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report named three centers that the Nets could target this season. These include JaVale McGee of the Cavaliers, Nerlens Noel of the New York Knicks, and Aron Baynes of the Toronto Raptors. “Noel is averaging 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per 36 minutes with the New York Knicks this season and would be an upgrade over DeAndre Jordan. He’s athletic enough to switch out on the perimeter and has been a solid rim protector...
    It has finally happened! James Harden has been traded to the Brooklyn Nets to form a super team with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. For the last few weeks, Harden’s future with Houston had been one of the hottest topics of discussion in the league. Many believed that Harden’s lack of enthusiasm in the last few games was a pretty clear message for the Rockets. Harden, who is usually one of the most dynamic players in any game, was visibly disinterested in contributing his hundred percent for the Texas based franchise. While the team initially hesitated in granting his request, they finally relented and realized that the Rockets’ future has to be built without the ‘Beard.’ Although Harden was the centerpiece for this trade, it involved 4 teams and numerous NBA biggies. Apart from Harden, fans saw many interesting players change teams. For starters, the Nets had to give up prospects such as Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen along with a plethora of draft picks. However, the Rockets used this opportunity to acquire Pacers’ Victor Oladipo, pairing him with John...

    With a 3-2 win-loss record to start the 2020-21 season, the Brooklyn Nets have gotten some great performances from their superstar duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. While they also have a good bench, with Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen both playing solidly, a recent article suggested that Brooklyn could acquire a third top-tier player by trading for Chicago Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine. As explained on Thursday by NBA Analysis Network, the hypothetical deal would involve LeVert, Allen, backup small forward Taurean Prince, and a 2021 first-round pick moving to the Bulls in exchange for LaVine and veteran forward Thaddeus Young. This transaction, as noted, could improve the Nets’ chances of winning a championship after an injury-marred 2019-20 season where Irving and Durant both dealt with serious injuries. Although he has yet to play in an All-Star Game, LaVine could potentially step up as the missing piece the club needs in order to win it all in the 2021 Finals, the outlet added. “LaVine is coming off a season where he averaged a career-high 25.5 points per game....
    Brooklyn Nets: Breaking down the Nets Final Preseason Win against the Celtics By: Spenser Shanman December 19, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditIf you’re a follower of Brooklyn Nets news, then you have probably seen the video of Kyrie Irving burning sage prior to the Nets’ final preseason game against the Celtics last night. Irving explained after the game, his “smudging” was meant to cleanse the energy in the arena but to0 many Nets fans, it may have had a slightly different meaning; a fresh start. Not since the early 2000s have Nets, fans had a team with this much hype and excitement around them. With a healthy Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, returning key contributors in Caris LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, and Jarrett Allen, and adding Landry Shamet and Jeff Green in the offseason to round out this roster, stakes could not be higher for the Brooklyn Nets as we approach the regular season.

    Brooklyn Nets: Projecting Steve Nash’s starting 5 for the 2021 season By: Olivier Dumont December 18, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThis next season for the Brooklyn Nets marks a very special, inaugural chapter for this franchise.  With their last NBA Finals appearance dating all the way back to the 2002-03 season, the Nets have been longing not only for a chance to reach the NBA Finals once again but to finally get the chance to win their very first NBA title. Since 2003, the Nets have embarked on an up and down, rollercoaster ride of success, clinching a playoff berth in 9 of their last 17 seasons but repeatedly coming up short, be it in the semifinals or in the 1st round.  As was expected at some point in time, desperation and hunger reached its climaxing point and the Nets, in a blink of an eye, sealed two of the biggest superstars this game has seen in Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. After being a mere 8th or 7th seeded team at best, the Nets all...
    The Nets have spent the past 15 months taking victory lap after victory lap, praised as visionaries, extolled for building in Brooklyn what has eluded Manhattan for more than two decades: hope, ambition, expectation. They have done this in the absence of many actual victories of course. There were only 35 of them last season. There were zero of them in the playoffs, inside the Florida bubble, the Raptors making their last championship stand in a four-game whitewash. Now, yes: There are reasons aplenty for that. The Nets knew they would play all of 2019-20 without Kevin Durant. They wound up playing most of the season without Kyrie Irving. The team that showed up in Lake Buena Vista was vastly depleted. But there is also this unshakeable truth: The Nets are built almost entirely on spec. They have created in Brooklyn something that sure seems like it could be interesting but is, in fact, propped up by some vast unknowns, chief among them: Will Durant come back at 95 percent of his old self? Ninety percent? Seventy-five? Less? What...

It’s going to cost more than $12 million a season to keep one of the game’s best sharpshooters, but it’s worth it to have him next to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. © AP Photo/Michael Perez If the Nets bring Harris back, what will that mean for the next guys they want to retain, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jarrett Allen? Both have locked-in contracts for next season, but will be up for paydays the season after that.

    Report: Brooklyn Nets’ big man Jarrett Allen looking for Clint Capela-type of extension By: Alder Almo November 7, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditWill the Brooklyn Nets extend or cash in Jarret Allen? This is one of the biggest questions that Net’s general manager Sean Marks would have to address aside from re-signing Joe Harris and finding the third star to complement the returning Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Allen’s contract extension talks could be tied with the last one as his name constantly pops up in trade rumors. Conventional wisdom says the Nets would likely play out Allen’s rookie deal and have him as a restricted free agent next year. But that would be tempting Allen to walk away after this season without getting anything in return. Former Nets’ assistant general manager and now ESPN’s front office insider Bobby Marks recently weighed in on Allen’s contract situation. “He’s looking for a Clint Capela-type of money,” Marks said on Brian Windhorst and the Hoop Collective Podcast. Capela signed a five-year $90-million extension deal with the...
    A convicted serial bank robber who hit the same Queens bank three times in three months has escaped from a Brooklyn halfway house and remains on the loose, according to records. Daryll Allen, 56, who was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison in 2014 for pulling off the bank heists, walked out of the halfway house at 6:56 a.m. Friday and never returned, the US Federal Bureau of Prisons said in a letter to Brooklyn prosecutors. “There has been no media attention regarding this case,” the letter said, adding that he is a threat to the public. Allen was charged with robbing a Queens Chase Bank branch three times between May and July 2012, court records show. In the first heist, he walked into the Rockaway Beach Boulevard bank on May 18 and handed the teller a note reading, “DON’T ALERT NO ONE, I HAVE A GUN.” He told the teller, “You better not touch the alarm until I walk out the door.” Allen walked away with $8,099, the records show. On June 22 he was back at...
    Since the 2019 offseason, the Brooklyn Nets have been active on the trade market, searching for their third superstar. Though they are yet to see their roster at its full strength, the Nets believe that they need more star power around Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in order to have a better chance of fully dominating the Eastern Conference and winning the NBA championship title next year. One of the teams who could express interest in helping the Nets this fall is the San Antonio Spurs. With the team likely heading into an inevitable rebuild, the Nets would be an ideal trade partner for the Spurs. According to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, the Nets and the Spurs may consider engaging in a blockbuster deal that would send LaMarcus Aldridge and Derrick White to Brooklyn in exchange for Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, Taurean Prince, and the No. 19 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. “The Spurs should be keeping a close eye on the Nets’ search for a third star, as the best-case scenario for San Antonio is Brooklyn...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Brooklyn baby’s home life was uncertain after her foster mother passed away from COVID-19. But the woman’s sister selflessly stepped in to help, CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez reported Thursday. Just days after 10-month-old Kaylin was born, she was placed in the care of her foster mother, Sharon Henry of Canarsie, Brooklyn. Marjorie Allen is Henry’s sister. “Joy. Just pure joy. She loved this baby so much. She doesn’t leave her anywhere unless she has to,” Allen said. “It was her heart. Her whole soul was this baby.” But in April, when Kaylin was just 6 months old, 59-year-old Henry, who suffered from lupus, was hospitalized with COVID-19. “We got the phone call that she had passed, and it was very devastating for the whole family,” Allen said.

    After failing to secure a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, rumors have once again started to swirl around All-Star shooting guard Bradley Beal and his future with the Washington Wizards. No matter how many times they insist that they have no plan of trading their best player, most people are still expecting Beal to be one of the highly coveted superstars on the trade market this fall. Recently, writers of SB Nation’s Bullets Forever have a discussion on whether the Wizards should undergo a full-scale rebuild or not in the 2020 offseason. If they finally consider taking a different route, Osman Baig of SB Nation’s Bullets Forever suggested that the Wizards are better off sending Beal to a team who are in dire need of additional star power like the Brooklyn Nets where they could potentially receive a trade package that includes Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, and multiple future first-round picks. “The other kind of funny thing about trading Beal and going full rebuild is I don’t think it would amount to that big of a step back. Beal...

    Brooklyn Nets: Jarrett Allen talks NBA bubble, his role in team’s rotation By: Robbie Stratakos July 3, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesIn an interview with Brian Lewis of the New York Post, Brooklyn Nets big man Jarrett Allen expressed uncertainty about whether players will be able to fully abide by the rules of the NBA bubble in Walt Disney World later this month. “It’s going to be 310 players or something like that. Take NBA players out of it: That’s a lot of people to make sure you have complete control and complete guidelines over. Then you add the NBA aspect, a bunch of grown men in this situation. We have our needs, we have our wants, and you know how we are,” Allen said with a smile. “I agree there’s going to be some level of hardship like Dame [Damian Lillard] said.” Despite the varying levels of apprehension Allen feels the players are in good hands with the NBA and Walt Disney World. “For...
    Seven members of a Brooklyn Bloods street gang called the Elite Assassin Millas — including the crime outfit’s reputed “godfather” — were busted Wednesday for terrorizing East New York with a campaign of gun violence, racketeering and murder, officials said. Quandel Smothers, 29, known as “Chucky,” led the group with an iron fist, and in 2011 allegedly shot a fellow EAM gangster, who he believed was planning to harm another group member in a dispute over drugs, the Brooklyn US Attorney’s office said Wednesday. “Gang-related violence begets more violence, and we will not tolerate the violent crimes allegedly committed by these defendants in our communities,” said Brooklyn US Attorney Richard Donoghue in a statement. Another member of the group, Tyshawn “Reck” Corbett, 30, is accused of fatally shooting a rival gangster named Michael Tenorio in 2015, as payback for the murder of an EAM member, the feds said. “Surveillance video of the murder shows that Corbett chased Tenorio down the residential block while firing at him, then continued shooting the victim after he fell to the ground,” the US...
