Tony Allen News

Tony Allen    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

The Clippers and Timberwolves have expressed interest in Tony Allen. Allen is 35 but still performed at a high level on the defensive end of the floor last season, leading the NBA in steal percentage (3.1). Also, Allen led all guards in offensive rebounds (166) and offensive rebounds per game (2.3). He has previously played for Clippers coach Doc Rivers and Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau. We shall see if he reunites with one of them.

The Clippers have "engaged" the Grizzlies for a possible sign-and-trade deal involving Tony Allen, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge. After losing Zach Randolph to Sacramento, losing Allen would have quite the impact on the Grizzlies' identity. Allen is 35 years old and he's missed at least 11 games in each of the last four seasons, so he wouldn't get more than around 25 minutes per game. Clippers coach Doc Rivers does have some experience with TA in Boston.

Tony Allen is "likely to sign quickly" in free agency, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge. There's no doubt the Grizzlies would like to have The Grindfather back at FedEx Forum next year, but Allen isn't going to take a veteran minimum. A lot of teams could use a guy like Allen to help with identity and depth, so maybe a younger team with cap space makes a run at T.A.

The Grizzlies aren't willing to offer Tony Allen more than the veteran's minimum this summer, according to sources of Memphis beat reporter Ronald Tillery. Allen is 35 years old and beginning to lose some of his luster as a defensive stalwart, so it wouldn't make much sense to give him a massive deal. However, he might be able to secure an offer for slightly more than the minimum outside of Memphis. Either way, there won't be many leagues where The Grindfather will be worthy of a draft pick next season.

Unrestricted free agent Tony Allen (calf) is confident he will stay in Memphis next season. "I'm not trying to break the bank," Allen said. In other words, it sounds like Allen is willing to give a hometown discount. Up until the last game of the year, Allen was fairly healthy this season with 71 games played. His calf string in the regular-season finale cost him a playoff run, but he'll be healthy before summer.

Tony Allen (calf) is out of his walking boot and is conditioning on a stationary bike. He's still very doubtful for the series against the Spurs. Coach David Fizdale went with James Ennis in the starting lineup and it worked to get a win after two blowup losses. Wayne Selden, Vince Carter and Ennis figure to take on most of the minutes on the wings.
