Malik Omar Allen is a retired American Power Forward. Allen is now assistant coach for the Detroit Pistons.

Allen attended Shawnee High School in Medford, New Jersey — an upper middle-class, predominantly white, Christian community that had a nationally ranked basketball team in the early to mid-nineties. Though he was one of few African-American students in high school, he was widely accepted by teachers and students, and became a local hero — carrying the team to a state championship in 1994-95 and 1995-96 as a junior. He averaged 21 points per game during his sophomore year.

Allen was undrafted in 2000 after a college career at Villanova University, and began his career with the San Diego Wildfire of the ABA. After that season, he joined the Miami Heat from 2001-2005.

He has also played for the Charlotte Bobcats (2005), Chicago Bulls (2005-2007), New Jersey Nets (2007-2008), Dallas Mavericks (2008), Milwaukee Bucks (2008-2009), Denver Nuggets (2009-2010), and Orlando Magic (2010-2011).

On March 8, 2007, Malik did not play a game against the Magic and was rushed to the hospital with an irregular heartbeat.
