The Nets added Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan in what has been an awesome off-season in Brooklyn. One of the new additions might be coming off of the bench.
Center DeAndre Jordan is joining a team that already has a young starting center in Jarrett Allen. That doesn’t necessarily mean there will be a position battle.
Nets coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters on Tuesday that Jordan is willing to come off the bench if needed.
Kenny Atkinson wouldn't commit to a starter in the Jarrett Allen-DeAndre Jordan center battle. But he said after speaking with Jordan – who hasn't come off the bench in a game since 2011 – the vet told him he'll do whatever is needed for #Nets to win.

Coming off the bench for $10 million a season isn’t a bad gig.
Sign me up in a heartbeat. I’m nowhere near Jordan’s size and I can’t do just about anything he can, but I guarantee a better free throw percentage.
