The terms of the agreement have not been disclosed, but it's likely a training camp or two-way deal. Allen, a second-round pick out of Arizona in 2017, played 107 minutes for the Celtics last season. He spent most of the campaign in the G-League, averaging 17.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.2 steals.
By waiving Allen, Boston has freed up an additional two-way contract. At 25 years old, the defensive-minded Allen still holds a fair share of upside. There's a chance another team will take a shot on him, but he'll have to increase his offensive productivity if he hopes to carve out a lengthy career at the professional level.
Washburn also notes that Boston is bringing in another player on a two-way contract next week, so the team is interested in getting a look at someone else. Allen played 107 minutes for the Celtics last season, posting 19 points, 12 assists, 11 rebounds, three steals and two blocks. He spent most of the year in the G-League, where he started 33 games and averaged 17.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.2 steals.
Allen failed to score, adding just two rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 96-78 loss to the Raptors.
Allen moved back to the bench with Terry Rozier back in the starting lineup. He was invisible on the court and one the Celtics start getting some of their players back, Allen is going to fall back out of the rotation. Leave him on the waivers.
Allen, with Terry Rozier (ankle) available and back in the starting five, will come off the bench for Wednesday's contest against Toronto, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.
Allen didn't play particularly well during his first career start, providing two points, two assists, one rebound, one steal and a block in 23 minutes. That said, with Rozier back in action, Allen should go back to his usual role, where he's presumably more comfortable.
