NBA Note - New Orleans Pelicans Allen, Tony

(TSX / STATS) -- G Tony Allen and the Pelicans agreed on a one-year, $2.3 million free agent deal, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

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.

Allen was named to the NBA second-team all-defensive team last season while playing for the Memphis Grizzlies. It was the sixth time in the past seven seasons he made an all-defensive team.

Allen averaged 9.1 points and 5.5 rebounds last season in 71 games, including 66 starts.
