Ray Leaves Miami Without Deal; Still Torn On Decision


Ray Allen left Miami without signing with the Heat. That's a good thing. He hasn't made a decision yet and is reportedly "torn" on the decision, so take it how you like. I assume he'll take his time - much like Kevin Garnett did - and make the decision that is best for him and his family.

Purely going on gut, I'm thinking that (like KG) he'll decide that staying in Boston is still his best option all things considered. While I still think that the Celtics and Heat are his top choices, he does have other options (that may be options just because they can give him a negotiating position).

Boston Celtics or Miami Heat? Ray Allen feels torn, sources say - ESPN

The sources did not go into specifics, saying Allen is torn because remaining a Celtic is still very much an option. Meanwhile, a third team -- the Minnesota Timberwolves -- has not been ruled out as an alternative for Allen, though he isn't at the top of the Wolves' wish list at the moment, sources tell ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher. The Phoenix Suns, Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers all reached out to Allen as well, but sources say the Clippers have been dropped from consideration and the Suns and Grizzlies have moved on to other alternatives. Allen, however, said a source familiar with his thinking, has not eliminated either the Suns or the Grizzlies.

Stay tuned. (As if I have to tell you that)
