The Brooklyn Nets have been vastly better when Jarrett Allen plays instead of DeAndre Jordan to begin the 19-20 season.
The Nets have been outscored by 13.4 points per 100 possessions with Jordan on the floor compared to plus-12 when Allen replaces him.
Jordan seemed to regress on defense last season with the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks. Jordan is only challenging 3.3 shots in the restricted area per game, according to Cleaning The Glass.
Brooklyn's decision to sign Jordan to a four-year, $40 million deal seemed more connected to his friendship with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant than where his productivity on the floor is at this stage in his career.
