The Memphis Grizzlies re-signed guard Tony Allen and forward Jon Leuer to multi-year contracts, the team announced Monday. Terms of the deals were not disclosed. Allen averaged 8.9 points, a career-high 4.6 rebounds and 1.51 steals in 79 starts last season. "Tony's energy, effort and passion have connected with the City of Memphis, both on and off the court," Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien said in a statement. "We are absolutely thrilled to bring back Tony and his intensity to the Grizzlies." Allen, 31, has averaged 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.29 steals in 545 games over nine seasons with the Grizzlies and Boston Celtics.
