Former Oklahoma State standout Tony Allen agreed to terms with the Memphis Grizzlies on a four-year, $20 million deal Tuesday.

The 6-foot-4 defensive wizard averaged 8.9 points per game last season as he helped the Grizzlies advance to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history. 

Allen's stellar defensive effort against Kevin Durant helped Memphis eliminate the Thunder in the second round of last season's Western Conference Playoffs.
