Former Villanova star Malik Allen has signed a contract with the Nets, returning to his home-state of New Jersey for an undisclosed amount. Allen played in 60 games last season for the Chicago Bulls where he averaged 4.0 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
“We are pleased to add Malik to our roster,” Nets president Rod Thorn said. “He is a proven NBA veteran who can potentially add depth to our frontcourt.”
Allen has played for the Miami Heat and the Charlotte Hornets before playing the past two seasons with Chicago. He has career averages of 6.0 points and 3.3 rebounds.
