Tony Allen is receiving a significant amount of interest as a free agent, according to HoopsWorld.The Lakers, Nets, Heat and Bulls are among the clubs interested in the career-long Celtic.
Allen isn’t expected to receive any formal offers from teams until this offseason’s big-name free agents are off the market.
Can’t say that I blame the Lakers for trying to pry Tony away from Boston. He proved that he is more than a serviceable defender on Kobe Bryant. On top of that, he does have some point guard skills. With Jordan Farmar expected to sign elsewhere (I’m hearing Indiana), Tony Allen may be what the Lakers need. I’m sure they’d rather have a much more polished point guard to back up the ancient Derek Fisher, but they could do much worse than getting Tony Allen.
