The five-foot-eight point guard was originally drafted No. 14 overall in the 2017 WNBA Draft by the New York Liberty. In her rookie season she competed in 28 games as a back up averaging 2.0 points, 2.2 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game. Allen was picked up prior to the 2018 season after being waived by the Liberty. In her first season with the Aces she competed in 24 games starting in six and averaged 3.1 points, 3.0 rebounds in 14.1 minutes per game. Nearly all of her numbers improves in her second season.
Allen sat out the 2019 season after suffering and knee injury and to rehab. She spent the last two seasons competing in Australia with top club Melbourne Boomers where she helped lead the club to the WNBL semifinals in 2019 and 2020. This past season, Allen averaged 14.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds for the Boomers. She shot an impressive 48.4 percent from the field.
Allen brings a steady backup to the Aces guard play in Kelsey Plum. She does a tremendous job of facilitating the offense and getting the ball where it needs to go. As she enters her third season in the league, expect her numbers to continue to improve and minutes to go up.
The announcement comes after an extremely newsworthy offseason for the Aces in terms of signings. The Aces announced the addition of five-time WNBA All-Star Angel McCoughtry in early February, who was signed in free agency. Raisa Musina, top Russian forward was signed as well. Liz Cambage has yet to re-sign with the Aces, but is expected to at this time.
