Tony Allen To Re-Sign With Celtics

It looks like the Celtics not only will return the Big Three for 2010, but also their biggest defender off the bench in Tony Allen:

According to CSNNE's Greg Dickerson, free agent Tony Allen will re-sign with Boston.

Dickerson broke the news while co-hosting Sports Tonight on Thursday.

"I'm told that Tony Allen's not going anywhere," Dickerson said. "He's staying here."

Details of the deal were not discussed.

Allen was called upon in many games last season to defend the opposing team's best shooter. He averaged 6.1 points per game last year:
