Quotes from his agent(Indy Star):
“He went home and contemplated the situation and then we reached an agreement,” Allen’s agent Andy Miller said. “He’s excited about the opportunity to come back and have a full summer and preseason and to get acclimated and integrated into Frank’s system, be a Pacer this year and hopefully contribute to their success as a team.”
“He’s getting married and going on his honeymoon. Then, it’s back in Indiana in August and (he) will be training with the team,” Miller said. “When he came in midseason, it was very difficult to get integrated into the inner fibers of the organization in terms of their system.
“Now he has familiarity and now he can get from a foundational standpoint involved and with it not being as intense it was at the midpoint of the season,” Miller continued. “It gives him a chance to get familiarized with the coaching staff and the system at a different point of the season.”
In 14 games with the Pacers, Allen averaged 2.9 points and 2.4 rebounds over eight minutes per game.
