Veteran Allen signs with Magic, joins crowded frontcourt

Posted Sep 16 2010 1:56PM

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Orlando Magic have signed free agent forward Malik Allen, bringing their training camp roster to 15 players.

The Magic announced the signing Thursday.

The 32-year-old Allen played 51 games for the Denver Nuggets last season. He has averaged five points and nearly three rebounds per game in nine NBA seasons.

Orlando already has several forwards who play heavy minutes, including Rashard Lewis, Brandon Bass and Ryan Anderson. So Allen will likely play a limited role should he make the final roster.

The Magic begin training camp Sept. 28.
