Reports: Tony Allen re-signs $20M deal with Grizzlies

Posted: Updated:
DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

The heart of the Memphis Grizzlies defense will remain just that. Tuesday night Grizzlies guard Tony Allen tweeted, "Memphis stand up!!!! #GrizzNation.

It was his way of letting the world know he had come to terms with the Grizzlies on a deal that would keep him in the Bluff City.

The deal is for four years and $20 million. Allen later tweeted "Thank you Lord for all that you've done and all that you're doing in my life. I am so grateful and humbled." 

The deal can't become official until July 10 when the free agency moratorium is lifted.  The 31-year-old Allen   averaged 8.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in 76 games last season.

It is his work on the defensive end that led to the $5 million-a-year deal.  Stay with FOX13 News and myfoxmemphis.com as we continue to bring you updates on this story.
