Bucks lock up guard Allen

Milwaukee Bucks guard Grayson Allen has signed a multiyear contract extension less than 2-1/2 months after the team acquired him from the Memphis Grizzlies. Allen joined the Bucks in an August 7 trade that sent guard Sam Merrill and two future second-round draft picks to Memphis. “Grayson has made a smooth transition and he’s already fit well within our system and culture,” Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a statement on Monday. “We’ve always been fans of Grayson and his impact on winning and his ability to spread the floor with his outside shooting. We’re excited to extend our relationship with him.” Allen posted career highs in scoring (10.6), rebounding (3.2) ad assists (2.2) last season in 50 games with the Grizzlies. He shot 41.8 percent from the field, 39.1 percent from 3-point range and 86.8 percent from the free-throw line. The 26-year-old averaged 11.3 points and 4.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes in four preseason games as a Buck.
