Lavoy Allen is throwing his NBA chances with the 76ers away. He missed the Saturday morning’s open practice at the Palestra on University of Pennsylvania’s campus.
He apparently overslept, according to Philly.com.
His apparent lackadaisical attitude might hinder his chances of getting an extension or offer from another team as mentioned in a previous article.
He was rumored to have partied at Temple University’s Cherry and White night as well as Club Aura in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia from pictures on his Instagram account the night before.
Allen also has been nursing a knee injury he suffered during the summer this off-season. He is in the final year of his two-year contract and looks to be falling out of coach, Brett Brown’s favor.
Expect some sort of discipline from Brown.
“It’s all part of the culture, the culture we’re trying to get right,” Brown told philly.com. “We will deal with him – I will deal with him. What else can you say?”
He’s been inconsistent this preseason. He grabbed nine rebounds in the win against the Boston Celtics, including three offensive boards.
Then he has a poor showing in Thursday’s loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. He fouled out and only managed to grab three rebounds while shooting 0 for 3 in his only start.
If Allen continues this, he may end up in Europe or the D-League. Currently, the Sixers could use his inside presence considering Arnett Moultrie, Kwame Brown and Nerlens Noel are hurt.
