    I like Tony but he's an imperfect player, very limited offensively. 

    And get this straight: he is NOT a backup point guard, his ball handling skills are weak. 

    Given that what we really need is point guards, not off guards (especially with the latest T-Will off season incident, and Ainge's desire to have options besides Rondo), I can't see Tony returning. He's a great defensively player at the 2 but to some extent we already have that with Lee and Bradley....

    p.s. Tony is not a good fit for Miami because his 3 point shooting is not nearly good enough. Miami needs a James Posey type. Ray Allen type shooting from the perimeter and strong D.

    Tony won't get more money than he is making now.  Low basketball IQ, poor shooting and ball-handling.  He has not worked on his weaknesses since he left the Celtics.  He plays with heart and you always need a good defender in your team, but I would pass on him. 

    Memphis did not develop his game at all.

    Tony Allen is weapon and will find someone who will pay him.  We would have beat the Heat last year with him.

    +1  Allen was exposed as an offensive liability against the Spurs.  He generally stood on the weak side and cut to the hoop on occasion.  He still can't hit 12'-15' jumpers, but does get out on the break.  He'd be a redundancy (older and slower w/less offense than Lee and/or Bradley); therefore unecessary in Bosotn.

    Makes no sense at all. Tony is 32, will get paid more than the MLE we can offer, and should be on a contender, C's appear ready to rebuild.

    The C's have a 22 year old defensive stopper of either guard position, and a very good 27 year old defender of SF's in Bradley and Green.

    Wake up CC, these attention seeking posts simply show how ignorant you are on things like the salary cap, current C's roster and situations of the player and franchises

    we wasted tony's prime years letting him play for another team.  now to welcome him back for another contract would be like keeping posey past the first year.  dumb

    The Knicks could use him. Pair him with Shumpart at the 2&3 with Chandler would be a good defensive lineup

    Agree with you.  Danny should have resigned Tony Allen when he had the chance.  To try to resign him at this point in his career doesn't make any sense.

    No. The Cs need player who can score. TA is just not that good. Tony Parker ate him up. And that time he spent with the Cs has passed. No need for him to return. He can't help the Cs win.

    Tony Allen is just a more experienced Avery Bradley with less upside and a bigger contract.

    We need a scorer at SG, not another brick-layer in the backcourt.
