Y! Sources: Phoenix will pursue free agent Ray Allen. tinyurl.com/c7bzuzu— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 28, 2012
Sources say Boston's push to move into the lottery is partly driven by a desire to land Duke's Austin Rivers.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) June 28, 2012
It's fair to say that every team is going to knock on Ray Allen's door. Thankfully, that door still has a Boston zip code. Also, Sam Amick's reporting that the Celtics' aggressive overtures earlier today to move up in the draft are directed at Austin Rivers. Let's hold off on discussing the machinations of such a move until it actually happens.
In other Rivers' family news, Doc and Sixers coach Doug Collins will serve as analysts for NBC during the Olympics. That's a great pair for TV. Expect a lot of talk about teams scoring too much.
