Lost amidst the hysteria of the NBA Draft yesterday, was another new twist in the Ray Allen free agency saga which will unfold next week. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports there is strong and potentially mutual interest between the Phoenix Suns and Ray Allen
The Phoenix Suns have surfaced as serious contenders to sign Boston Celtics free agent Ray Allen, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Allen, 37, is willing to explore offers beyond Boston. The Suns – regardless of whether they re-sign free-agent point guard Steve Nash – interest Allen, sources said.
The Suns have significant salary-cap space, and could pay Allen more than the Miami Heat or New York Knicks. Suns president Lon Babby had been Allen’s agent for a significant part of his career until Babby started running Phoenix’s basketball operations two years ago.
