Denver Nuggets Rumors: Why Team Would Be Wise to Target Tony Allen

+Read full article

Troy Taormina-USA Today Sports

The Denver Nuggets are going through a bit of a transitional phase, especially along the sidelines, after making the decision to fire head coach George Karl, after a season in which he was named the NBA’s Coach of the Year.

With Brian Shaw taking over the team, the Nuggets are facing an uncertain direction with their future — they are talented, but they need to fill some holes. Free agent shooting guard Tony Allen is one of the names under consideration from the Nuggets and he’s one of the options that would be an ideal fit for the Nuggets moving forward.

At this point, Allen has earned his way to this interesting juncture. The strong, defensive-minded shooting guard is being targeted by numerous teams and that’s not something that he had at his disposal early on during his NBA career. Now, while the talk is heating up about Allen and his free agency, the Memphis Grizzlies do not necessarily want to part ways with him. According to reports however, the Nuggets may be the frontrunner if the Grizzlies cannot lock Allen up on their own.

In addition, other teams such as the Indiana Pacers, New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks have also reportedly been interested in Allen.

We are less than 24 hours into free agency, but the rumors are aplenty and Allen will be a name to watch, especially if you are a Denver fan.

Grizzlies' Chalmers Takes Cheap Shot At Nurkic

Since arriving in the NBA as a rookie out of Kansas, Mario Chalmers has had a tough road to climb as he's never really gotten a true opportunity to be the top guy. Now with Memphis, he's had an opportunity to start a few games with Mike Conley battling a back injury, but he shows in this video that he's still too immature to take advantage.
