Mr. Grit and Grind himself will remain with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Tony Allen, a free agent shooting guard whose tenacious defense and tough persona have embodied the Grizzlies' style, has agreed to return on a four-year, $20 million deal.

Two people with knowledge of the deal confirmed it to USA TODAY Sports, but spoke on the condition of anonymity because the agreement which can't be finalized until July 10 had not been announced.

Allen won a championship with the Boston Celtics in 2008, then signed with the Grizzlies as a free agent in the summer of 2010. He averaged 12 points and 6.2 rebounds last season, while anchoring the perimeter defense as always on one of the league's stingiest teams.
