Speculation: Ray Allen To Stay In Boston Past This Season?

New, comments

As you all know, Ray Allen's deal expires after this coming season.  However, Peter May reports on speculation that he'll be back in Boston beyond this year:

File this under the "Hot Rumor’’ category. Ray Allen’s contract is up at the end of the season and Celtics president Danny Ainge reports that no serious talks have taken place regarding an extension. But there is considerable chatter in Wellesley, where Allen lives, that his teenage daughter may move in with him. Tierra Allen has lived with her mother in South Carolina and plays volleyball and basketball in high school. She would be a junior at Wellesley High (and why would she come if dad wasn’t planning on playing beyond this year? Just an observation). Needless to say, the Wellesley basketball community is watching all this with great interest. With volleyball starting this week, one would think something has to break pretty soon.

No idea if this has any validity, but if it does, consider me on board.  I'd love to see Ray sign a two year extension, maybe with a third year team option.
