Tony Allen Traded From New Orleans Pelicans to Chicago Bulls

The Grindfather is heading home.

Just months after the Memphis Grizzlies moved on from their first-team all-defensive star, Allen, 36, is a part of a trade between the New Orleans Pelicans and Chicago Bulls that ships him, along with Omer Asik, Jameer Nelson, and a 2018 first round pick to his hometown, the Windy City.

The Pelicans are getting Nikola Mirotic and a 2018 second round pick in return.
