The Grizzlies Tony Allen is known for his knee-buckling defense in the NBA, now he’s going on the offense as a spokesperson for Memphis International Airport. Among the promotions will be a promotion called “Take Off With The Grizzlies” in which fans can win tickets for flights and road games.

The Announcement comes after a slew of new announcements about the growth of Memphis International Airport and future plans.

The future plans include consolidating most of the current traffic into concourse B with significant upgrades to that concourse. Take a look at the rendering below to see what it would look like when those improvements are done.

“I know a little something about putting in hard work to build a better, finished product. The airport, like basketball, has no offseason and never stops grinding. So, I’m happy to lend my voice to Memphis International as they enter this new phase of development to bring an improved facility to Memphis.”
