Lavoy Allen has reached an agreement on a new contract with Indiana Pacers, as first reported by ESPN's Chris Broussard and confirmed by the Indianapolis Star's Candace Buckner. The big man was acquired at February's trade deadline in the same deal that sent away Danny Granger and brought Evan Turner to Indiana.
Allen only played in 14 games for the Pacers, averaging 2.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 8.0 minutes per contest. In 51 games for the Philadelphia 76ers before the trade, he averaged 5.2 points and 5.4 rebounds in 18.8 minutes per game.
Despite his unrestricted-free-agent status, Allen practiced with Indiana's summer league team, and told the Indianapolis Star that he wanted to fight for a spot in the rotation in training camp.
With Indiana's recent agreement to sign stretch-four Damjan Rudez, it might be even more challenging for Allen to break into the rotation. For the Pacers, though, he's a good asset to retain at a cheap price.
