Grizzlies to retire ex-player Allen's No. 9

The Grizzlies said that they plan to eventually retire the number of Tony Allen, who spent seven seasons in Memphis before signing with the Pelicans.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Grizzlies announced that Tony Allen's No.9 will be retired in Memphis after his career ends. "Tony was a driving force behind the Grizzlies' seven straight playoff appearances and he remains a beloved member of the Memphis community," Grizzlies owner Robert Pera said in a statement. "Tony played with a level of passion that is unrivaled. He helped establish a Grizzlies culture focused on toughness and effort, and he challenged every player that put on Beale Street Blue to match his fiery intensity. On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank him for his incredible contributions to the Grizzlies and the unique way that he inspired the city of Memphis. We are proud that the Grindfather's #9 jersey will hang in the rafters of FedExForum alongside Zach's one day."
