Lavoy Allen re-signed with the Pacers late Friday night.

The terms of the deal are not disclosed yet, but it's likely a short-term offer. Allen did not play very often since his trade from the 76ers last season, averaging just 8.0 minutes per game in his 14 games with the Pacers. He'll just serve as emergency depth.

Lavoy Allen is an unrestricted free agent following the Pacers' decision not to give him a $3.8 million qualifying offer.

Allen had a quiet 2013-14 season during which he struggled with various injuries and questions about his conditioning. He plans to play for the Pacers' Summer League team and may still sign with Indy, but he won't earn $3.8 million per year.

Lavoy Allen plans to attend Pacers rookie/free agent camp next week and it sounds likely that he'll play on their Summer League team.

Allen was traded to the Pacers last February but saw extremely limited minutes. Even if he has a good camp and summer, it's hard to see him making much noise if he ends up on the Pacers roster once the regular season rolls around.

Lavoy Allen is not expected to play for the Pacers unless injuries strike the frontcourt.

"I have to be prepared and come in here and get some extra conditioning and be ready when my name is called," said Allen. He gives Indiana some frontcourt insurance as they march toward the playoffs, but fantasy owners should ignore him while Roy Hibbert is healthy.

Lavoy Allen was traded to the Pacers on Thursday.

He'll go from what would have been a key rotational role with Philly to a bench-warming big on the contending Pacers. If you picked up Allen based on the Spencer Hawes deal, you can go ahead and let him go at your earliest convenience. Additionally, the Sixers still have 16 players on their roster and would have to cut one more player.

Lavoy Allen will get more playing time with the Sixers.

He has primarily been a backup power forward this season, but the Sixers have asked him to play some center, as well. Allen has played 22.2 minutes per game over his last five, averaging 6.4 points, 6.4 boards, 0.4 blocks and 1.0 steals on just 36.8 shooting from the field. He's a a somewhat safe add in deeper leagues, but the low ceiling shouldn't be very attractive in standard leagues.

Lavoy Allen returned to action on Tuesday February 18.

Lavoy Allen is dealing with left knee soreness on Wednesday and is questionable to return.

He had some knee issues last season and there is no word on how bad his soreness is. The Sixers will likely give more minutes to Arnett Moultrie, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues.

Lavoy Allen nearly double-doubled off the bench on Friday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes.

This is one of the better lines you'll see out of Allen and it's enough to give him some 14-team value in 9-cat formats over the past week on the strength of just 0.8 giveaways per game. That's an improvement over his usual production, so naturally he's only worth a look in the deepest of leagues.

Lavoy Allen double-doubled off the bench in Friday's blowout loss, scoring 11 points on 5-of-10 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in just 21 minutes.

Allen and Hollis Thompson (seven points, one three, one steal, 25 minutes) were possible replacements in the starting lineup for Spencer Hawes and James Anderson, and after getting throttled tonight it's fair to wonder if some sort of change is made. We don't expect big minute changes among this group, and even with this decent line owners can watch this action from the wire in the vast majority of formats.
