Jarrett Allen Re-Ups With Cleveland Cavaliers for $100 Million


The Cleveland Cavaliers, just 4 days after selecting center Evan Mobley, have re-signed center Jarrett Allen to a 5-year, $100 million dollar contract. The Cavs now boast a formidable massive twin-towers frontcourt. 

Allen was a restricted free agent, but the Cavs made it clear all along that they would be pushing hard to re-sign him. 

The Toronto Raptors, a team with a gaping hole at center, were said to be a major threat to pursue Allen, but the Cavs didn't take long after the 6pm opening of the free agency period to lock him up. 

Cleveland received Allen from the Brooklyn Nets in the blockbuster midseason trade that sent James Harden to join Kevin Durant in Brooklyn.

Allen established himself as a defensive presence for the Cavs, and put up solid numbers across the board, averaging 13.2 PPG, 9.9 rebound, and 1.4 blocks in his 51 games with the team.
