Report: Grizzlies mainstay Tony Allen finalizing one-year deal with Pelicans
Spent the past seven seasons in Memphis, and provides New Orleans a veteran presence
Allen was a central figure of the Grizzlies' Grit-N-Grind era, but this offseason the franchise has focusing on youth in a bit of a reboot.
Aside from Allen's reported departure, Zach Randolph also left to find a new home, signing as a free agent with the Sacramento Kings. They played a combined 15 seasons in Memphis, seven by Allen after his successful six-season run with the Boston Celtics.
Last season, Allen averaged 9.1 points 5.5 rebounds and 1.6 steals, but it was cut short with a calf injury that kept him out of the postseason.
Allen has been named to the NBA All-Defensive first team three times, and to the second team three more times. He won an NBA championship with the Celtics in 2008.
