Pelicans agree to deal with G Allen

Pelicans agree to deal with G Allen

According to Scott Kushner of The Advocate, Allen may sign a one-year deal worth at least $2.3 million, the minimum salary for any National Basketball Association player with more than ten years of service. Allen was often credited for Memphis' hard-nosed playing style and was given the nickname of the "Grindfather", while the FedExForum came to be known as "The Grindhouse".

After signing former National Basketball Association champion Rajon Rondo and re-signing Jrue Holiday earlier the summer, the Pelicans are reportedly bringing in Tony Allen. Last season with the Pelicans, Solomon took the challenge of guarding the opponent's best perimeter scorer, which will be the veteran's role now.

He also made it to the All-Defensive Second Team three times, in 2011, 2016 and 2017.

Allen averaged 9.1 points and 5.5 rebounds in 71 games for the Grizzlies last season. Allen won an National Basketball Association championship alongside Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, andPaul Pierce back in 2008. "Prior to Allen's seven-year tenure with the Grizzlies, the 6'4" shooting guard began his career with the Boston Celtics. In fact, a potential starting lineup of Rajon Rondo (30.4 percent career 3-point shooter), Jrue Holiday (36.6), Allen, Davis (29 percent), and Cousins (33 percent) would quite possibly be the worst 3-point-shooting lineups in the league.

One of the few remaining free agents is off the National Basketball Association market.
