Beating Stephon Marbury to his dream, Allan Ray has signed with an Italian team. He also avoids the inevitable cut that was coming in a few days. Shira Springer reports:
Allan Ray will play overseas upon agreeing to a two-year contract with Italian Serie A team Lottomatica Roma worth $2 million, a league source said yesterday.
The deal is a significant pay increase for Ray, who would have earned $687,456 with the Celtics next season. Boston had until Wednesday to decide whether to pick up the option on the guard's contract.
