A true post player with a fundamentally sound game.
Allen live son the low block, where he can score on a variety of back to the basket moves and face up jumpers. He doesn't blow you away with athleticism but he has the size and strength to be a major force in the paint.
He does a good job of establishing position and shows his hands well, getting himself ready to receive the post entry pass. He finishes well through contact and doesn't shy away from physical play. He's very efficient with his movements and plays a steady, efficient game.
Does a good job of defending the post, playing with discipline and good positioning. Uses his length well to disrupt shots without drawing fouls.
Plays within himself and doesn't try to do too much. Makes good decisions and plays the game the right way.
Allen is not a big time athlete and he kind of lumbers up and down the court. He doesn't get great lift and is just an adequate above the rim player. He's got an old school game and doesn't stretch the floor like many modern Bigs.
Projection: possible first round pick in the 2017 or 2018 NBA Draft
