An interesting tidbit on the Lakers’ free agency search. Alex Kennedy reports:
Hoopsworld: Tony Allen has received interest from many teams in the first day of free agency. Last night, several teams looking for a defensive stopper made calls inquiring about Allen and it’s clear there are teams ready to bid for his services.
The Los Angeles Lakers, New Jersey Nets, Miami Heat, and Chicago Bulls are among the teams that expressed interest in the guard. Most teams are waiting for the top tier free agents to make decisions before pursuing others but Allen will have a list of potential suitors when that time comes. Allen’s impressive track record in the postseason and lockdown perimeter defense has many teams interested in his services.
