Ray Allen 2 years/20 mil with the Celtics
The Celtics signed Ray Allen to a 2 year contract today with a player option for the 2nd year. All the dominoes seem to be falling around the league on the verge of Lebron announcing where he will play basketball for his near future tomorrow. The Celtics are a team that was just one game away from winning the NBA finals last season and will keep its main core in tact with Rondo, Garnett, Pierce, and now Allen. Don't forget this was the same Celtics team who couldn't secure a home court advantage for the playoffs and a group that without question is playing on the back nine of their careers.
Depending on the news of Lebron tomorrow one name that makes sense for Boston will be Shaquille O'Neal. If Lebron stays in Cleveland look for Shaq to stay also, but if Lebron should bolt look for Shaq in Celtic green. They have everything he needs in a team: a big market, a slow tempo offense, a title contender, veteran coach and team that is saying if we don't give up 23 offensive rebounds in game 7 we just won our second title in three years. stay posted!
