On Wednesday the Washington Wizards added a six-year NBA veteran Lavoy Allen to their list of training camp invitees.
At 29, Allen comes to the Wizards after being picked up by the Capital City Go-Go in the G-league's expansion draft.
Here are five things to know about the newest Wizard:
1. Allen spent the last season in the G-league
Although he has spent six years in the NBA, he was not as fortunate during the 2017-18 season. Last year he was on the court with the Northern Arizona Suns and only played in 10 of the squad's 50 games.
Averaging 21 minutes of action, he scored nine points a game and grabbed just over six rebounds.
2. At 6-9, Allen Recorded 22 rebounds in an NBA game
Allen's second year in the association was arguably the best of his career. Ascending as a rotational for the Philadelphia 76ers, Allen started a career-high 37 games during the 2012-13 season.
None of his starts were bigger for him than a February win over the Charlotte Bobcats when he brought down 22 rebounds, 11 of them on the offensive end. He also recorded 14 points on 7-for-16 shooting.
3. He's the all-time leading rebounder in Temple history
As one of the best Owls to ever suit up, Allen has etched his name in the Temple record books. With 1,147 boards there is not a single Owl that has more.
During his collegiate career Allen carried Temple to four NCAA Tournaments. He also holds the record for games started and rebounds in a single season at Temple.
4. Played in France for a season after being drafted by Philadelphia
Philadelphia was the team that took a chance on the talented forward/center. After getting selected 50th in the 2011 draft, Allen had to wait before he jumped onto an NBA court. Due to the lockout, Allen had to play in France for IG Strasbourg, until the labor dispute was over.
5. Wrote "Go Pacers" on the Cleveland Cavaliers' Quicken Loans Arena
At first this seems like the ultimate sign of disrespect. Then you look at everyone else's scribble on the hardwood and it is less impressive.
Still not too many players have this as a headline during an NBA playoff game. Less than two months after this picture, he was out of job.
