JULY 11TH: The signing is official, the team announced via press release.
“We’re very happy to have Lavoy back,” Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said. “When he had the opportunity to play, he played well. He fits in with what we’re trying to accomplish here and every day he’s committed to getting better.”
JULY 5TH: The Pacers have reached a deal with Lavoy Allen to keep him in Indiana, tweets Chris Broussard of ESPN.com. The two sides reached agreement late last night, according to Candace Buckner of The Star (on Twitter).
The Pacers declined to extend a qualifying offer to Allen on June 30th, but there was still mutual interest in working out a new deal. Less than a week later, the forward found his way back to the Pacers. Allen came to the Pacers in the February deal that brought Evan Turner to Indiana.
In 65 games for the Sixers and Pacers last season, Allen averaged 4.7 PPG and 4.8 RPG in 16.5 minutes per contest.
