Tony Allen is Staying in Memphis
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WCBI) – He is one of the best defenders in all of basketball, and he’s staying in Memphis for the foreseeable future.
The Grindfather himself, Tony Allen sent a tweet Wednesday (7-3) morning indicating that he will continue to use his talents in the Bluff City.
Multiple media outlets are confirming that the free agent shooting guard has agreed to a 4 year, $ 20 million deal.
His ferocious energy has endeared Allen to fans across the mid-south, and resigning him became a top priority for the new Grizzlies management team seeking to preserve some continuity after Memphis made its first ever trip to the Western Conference Finals.
