The biggest knock on Allen is he is a streaky shooter. This was on great display nba 2k20 Duke’s Sweet 16 matchup against Syracuse where Allen was just 3-of-14 from the three point line. Allen can get red hot as he showed against Michigan State hitting seven of 11 threes. The challenge is Duke does not always know what it is going to get from Allen on a nightly basis.
Much has been made about Allen’s on-court antics, tripping opponents and going past the line at times. This is unlikely to have a big impact on his draft stock either way, but it definitely falls in the the negative column when evaluating him for the NBA.
Summary: Allen’s offensive ability makes him an intriguing prospect, but his inconsistency as a shooter is scary. Allen can plug in as a rotational player coming off the bench to provide instant offense. The challenge is Allen will be competing with other college basketball upperclassman like Jalen Brunson and Devontae’ Graham for a spot at the end of the first round. Allen could wind up slipping into the early second round where an NBA team will be happy to gain his shooting prowess.
