Still, the importance of the 'others' is crucial for Steve Nash's team, who has proven to have one of the deepest rosters in the entire association.
One of those key players is Jarrett Allen, a third-year player who has been in Brooklyn from the D'Angelo Russell's times' to the new era.
Chris Haynes from Yahoo Sports reported Allen did not agree an extension with Brooklyn and is expected to become a restricted free agent after this upcoming season.

Brooklyn’s first-round pick from the 2017 NBA Draft is a versatile player, being able to protect the paint and at the same time delivering on the offensive end thanks to his athleticism.
Allen has made the playoffs in two of his first three seasons in the league, averaging 10.7 points and 10.3 rebounds in the nine games he's played in the postseason.
