According to an Instagram post by the company, Young Money APAA Sports & Entertainment has signed former University of Arizona guard Kadeem Allen.

The 6’3″ 205 pound Allen is coming off his redshirt senior season in which he was selected as an All Pac-12 Second Team member and was also voted to the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team by the conference coaches. He transferred to Arizona after two years at Hutchinson Community College, where he was named the 2014 National JUCO Player of the Year. In his two seasons at Arizona, he averaged 9.1 points, 3.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.
