NBA All-Star Profile: Ray Allen
Special to ESPN Classic

Ray Allen was an All-America selection and the 1996 Big East Player of the Year at Connecticut.

He was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the fifth overall pick of the 1996 NBA Draft and immediately traded, along with center Andrew Lang, to the Milwaukee Bucks for point guard Stephon Marbury, the fourth overall choice.

Allen played in all 82 games as a rookie, making 81 starts, the most of any Milwaukee player. His 13.4 ppg ranked third on the team, and he topped the Bucks with 117 three-point field goals.

In his second season, Allen ranked second on the Bucks in scoring and 17th in the NBA at 19.5 ppg. He started all 50 games in 1998-99 and again ranked second in scoring at 17.1 ppg, leading the team with 74 three-pointers.
