Phoenix Suns’ guard to stay with the team after posting career-best numbers

By Eurohoops Team /

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Phoenix Suns sharpshooter Grayson Allen has inked a lucrative four-year extension worth $70 million.

Throughout the season, Allen has been a consistent force on the court, showcasing his scoring prowess with an average of 13.4 points per game, shooting with 46.1 percent accuracy from beyond the arc, and averaging 3.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game.

The deal keeps Allen out of unrestricted free agency this summer and rewards him for a career-best season.

Allen was selected by the Utah Jazz as the 21st overall draft pick in 2018 and moved to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2019. After two seasons, he joined the Milwaukee Bucks, and last summer, he was traded to the Suns in a three-team trade that sent Damian Lillard to the Bucks.

So far, he has made 339 NBA regular-season appearances, averaging 10.5 points and a 41% three-point shooting percentage.
