Allen chooses to sign with Miami Heat
Question of the Day
Miami is still hoping to add at least one more piece through free agency, and is expected to meet this weekend with Marcus Camby and Rashard Lewis.
Allen was mentioned in some trade possibilities this past season, and eventually lost his starting job to Avery Bradley. Allen needed surgery earlier this offseason to remove bone spurs from his right ankle, though said when the Celtics were ousted from the playoffs by the Heat for the second straight year that his playing days were not over.
“There’s still a lot of basketball left in my legs,” Allen said in Miami not long after the Celtics dropped Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals to the Heat. “I know that for sure. So it’s hard to say what can happen, what may happen.”
Earlier this week, the Celtics reportedly agreed on a $15 million, three-year deal with shooting guard Jason Terry. But Boston also wanted to keep Allen, with general manager Danny Ainge quoted in recent days saying “we really want Ray to come back. Time will tell.”
Miami wanted Allen because of its ongoing quest to keep surrounding James, Wade and Bosh with shooters who extend defenses and therefore create room around the basket for the “Big Three” to attack. That approach worked perfectly for Miami in the playoffs _ the Heat were 9-1 when making at least eight 3-pointers in playoff games (7-6 otherwise), and they hit 14 in the finals-clincher over Oklahoma City.
Allen has made an NBA-record 2,718 3-pointers.
