Tony Allen Expects To Be Ready By Season Opener, Unconcerned About Contract
Tony Allen fully expects to be in the lineup for the season opener Oct. 31 at Los Angeles after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.
"I'm definitely getting myself back to being that thirsty dog," Allen said. "I don't want to rush it. But I'll be back for the first game, Oct. 31, against the (Los Angeles) Clippers. I guarantee that."
Allen is set to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
"I can't think about that. I have to let that play out," Allen said. "When I came here, I did everything they asked me to do. I'll keep it simple and let the organization make that decision. I don't want to go anywhere."
