Rumours have been swirling over the last couple of weeks as to whether shooting star Ray Allen would stay in Boston, where he won a championship in the 2007/2008 season, or if he would take his talents elsewhere with hopes of winning another ring.
After meeting with several teams, Allen has decided to join the most recent NBA champions, the Miami Heat. This news comes just one day after meeting with Heat President Pat Riley. The already stacked Heat will add the NBA all time leader in three-pointers made to their roster, in hopes of winning another ring.
Allen will be leaving the Boston Celtics after five seasons and will be accepting a cut in his salary to play with the Heat. He will earn $3 million for the upcoming 2012/2013 season, but cannot officially sign the contract until Wednesday.
With LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh starting and Ray Allen coming off the bench, I can definitely picture Allen winning another ring, and the Miami Heat repeating as NBA champions. What about you?
What do you think of Allen’s move to the Heat?
