The Brooklyn Nets signed Jarrett Allen to a four-year, $100 million contract in the offseason. He has been using his new contract to make promises to the team that he will fulfill. One of these promises is a fast-food field trip for the Cavs if they win their first NBA title since 2016.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are still a long way from competing for the NBA title. However, with center Jarrett Allen, the Cavs seem to be on the right road.
This summer, Allen was rewarded with a lucrative nine-figure deal. Naturally, his teammates are expecting for a nice meal from the 6-foot-11 center. And it seems that they will get their wish… but not on a Sunday.

Allen was a first-round selection of the Brooklyn Nets in 2017. He was a former Texas Longhorn. Allen became a full-fledged starter in year two after a rookie season in which he averaged 20 minutes per game. Allen averaged almost 11 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game in 80 starts. In his third season, he improved even more, with his field-goal percentage rising from 59 to just under 65 percent.
However, Allen’s career was cut short by Brooklyn’s quest for a superstar to join Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. As part of the four-team James Harden transaction, the Nets moved the 23-year-old to the Cavaliers. Allen benefited from the change of environment, averaging 13.2 points and almost 10 rebounds in 51 games for Cleveland. Allen decided to re-sign with the Cavs on a five-year, $100 million contract after considering his alternatives as a restricted free agency.
After signing, Allen stated, “Seeing a team like this, understanding what it takes, we have all the right people and the proper attitudes to accomplish it.” “So I said to myself, ‘Hey, I’m ready to do this again, particularly with these people.’ I see a great future here, and I feel completely at home.”
Allen pledged to get his squad a Chick-fil-A meal.

The $100 million guy does not want his Cavaliers teammates to think worse of him. He does, however, intend to foot the bill for Chick-fil-A, assuring Evan Dammarell of FearTheSword that he would take his squad there in the near future.
This season, Allen is expected to earn $20 million. Allen has a number of choices if he chooses to be financially reckless and spend it all at Chick-fil-A:
- 6,493,506 Original Chicken Sandwiches ($3.08 each pre-tax in Ohio)
- a total of 5,420,054 Deluxe Sandwiches ($3.79)
- 4,454,342 Chick-fil-A 12-count Nuggets ($4.49 each)
- Large Waffle Fries ($1.87 each): 10,695,187
- 6,289,308 Large Milkshakes (each $3.18)
He could also go for a healthy salad or perhaps breakfast, but you get the picture.
The Cavaliers, who are well-fed, show some promise.
The Cavaliers are going to need a lot of food this season. The club made waves this summer by selecting Evan Mobley, trading for Lauri Markkanen, and signing Tacko Fall, giving them a total of four players standing at least 6-foot-11.
The Cavs, on the other hand, should be much more than a collection of tall men. Collin Sexton and Darius Garland have created a formidable backcourt duo, with veteran Ricky Rubio adding stability and leadership. Isaac Okoro, the fifth overall selection in 2020, had lots of action late in his rookie season and showed potential. Then there’s Kevin Love, a five-time All-Star who played in just 25 games last season and may be more of a reserve when he’s fit.
It’s fair to presume Allen will be a member of the starting lineup, regardless of how head coach J.B. Bickerstaff fills it out. But, just in case, he should purchase a couple of sandwiches for his coach.
