Pelicans to sign veteran guard Tony Allen

Pelicans to sign veteran guard Tony Allen

Allen was named to the National Basketball Association second-team all-defensive team last season while playing for the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Pelicans signed defensive specialist Tony Allen to one-year deal on Monday, according to The Vertical.

Allen, 35, will provide depth on the wing, which is particularly important with Solomon Hill out for an extended period due to a hamstring injury. However, none of those teams were in position to offer Allen the veteran minimum contract.

Memphis coach Lionel Hollins (left) is talking to Tony Allen (9) and Mike Conley in Atlanta Hawks 112-109 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. With Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins inside, New Orleans is in desperate need of perimeter shooting, and, while Allen has become one of the league's premier perimeter defenders when healthy over the years, he's never been a reliable shooter. Allen has played in 112 playoff games, averaging 6.0 points and 3.0 rebounds with the Celtics and Grizzlies.

The New Orleans Pelicans are definitely making a push to upgrade their backcourt this offseason.
