The Winnipeg Sea Bears say they're parting ways with one of their top players due to a "misalignment of values and vision."

The club made the announcement on Monday morning, a day after the club lost at home to the Edmonton Stingers, 97-87.

"Teddy Allen has been a valued member of our team, and we sincerely appreciate his contributions during his tenure with the Sea Bears," said head coach and general manager Mike Taylor. "However, after careful consideration and many discussions, it has become evident that there is a misalignment of values and vision of the path forward for the club."

Allen was named the league MVP in 2023 and currently leads the league in points per game, averaging 28.1, including scoring 39 points in Sunday's losing effort.

"The decision to release Teddy Allen was very difficult, however it was made with the best interests of the organization in mind," said team president Jason Smith.

"We remain committed to maintaining a cohesive and forward-thinking team environment that aligns with our core values and objectives. Our organization dedicates itself to upholding high standards of team, integrity, respect and consideration for our community."

The Winnipeg Sea Bears thank Teddy Allen for his dedication and efforts and wish him the best in his future endeavours.
