The New Jersey Nets announced Monday they signed the free agent forward, who played for Shawnee High School in Medford. The Nets will be the fourth NBA team for the 29-year-old Allen, who played 60 games last season for Chicago, averaging 4.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 10.6 minutes.
``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, who played for Villanova, began his career with the Miami Heat. After more than three seasons, he was traded to Charlotte during the 2004-05 season, and spent the past two seasons with the Bulls.
He's averaged 6.0 points and 3.3 rebounds in his career.
