Ray Stays!

Multiple sources saying that the Celtics and Ray Allen have agreed to a two-year deal for $10 million per season with the 2nd year a player option.  

So far this off-season Danny has signed both Ray and Paul to reasonable deals, and kept Doc.   Those were priorities 1,2 and 3 (you pick your own order).  Now lets get some front court help to fill the void while Perk rehabs.   Get to it Danny, you're on a roll so far.  

Update: Jessica Camerato reports that despite being recruited by LeBron James to join Wade and Bosh in Miami to form a "Dream Team" Ray chose to stay with the Celtics.  Phenominal.

"I'm happy to be returning as a Celtic," he told via text message. "There's no other place I wanted to be."

"I believe I'm so far ahead of the game that I'm able to play longer," he told during the regular season. "People look at basic standards of guys my age at 34, like some guys at 34, there's no way they could play basketball right now. And I'm thinking at my age now, I can go even a few more years doing what I'm doing the way I'm doing it because for me, it's not rocket science."
