Miami, Memphis Will Hotly Pursue Ray Allen In Free Agency


It’s no secret that Miami will be in pursuit of Ray Allen at midnight tonight, but the latest team added to the Ray Allen sweepstakes is none other than the Memphis Grizzlies, according to  Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial-Appeal. The Grizz will have the full mid-level exception and a potential spot in the starting lineup (ahead of Tony Allen) for his liking. This brings Ray’s options to the following.

Miami: Best shot at championship, least amount of money (3 million), likely bench role
Phoenix: No shot at championship, starting job and potentially biggest contract
Memphis: Mid-level exception money (5 million) and potential starting job on talented team with outside shot at Finals run.

Then of course, there’s the Celtics who will probably offer at least the mid-level money and a significant role off the bench. Of course, Allen may be another way to sign-and-trade for O.J. Mayo potentially as well, but Steve Bulpett of The Boston Herald tweets that Boston still wants to bring back Ray. That makes two of us.

Will Boston have enough to woo Ray from the other suitors? We’ll find out soon….

    So… would Ray be Tony Allen's backup, or would Tony be Ray's backup? I kind of feel like whoever is the backup won't like it very much.

    But I could see going to Memphis, to try to push them over the top. The same for Chicago and the Clippers (not mentioned in this article). I can also see going to Phoenix for the money, the role, and the trainers.

    I just can't see going to Miami to be Dwyane Wade's backup, for minimal money, to ride on the coattails of a team which just won a championship without you. It makes no sense to me. It hasn't happened, but even the idea that Ray is apparently _considering_ it is baffling.

    I could understand him going to Miami of Memphis, as much as it would be hard to stomach the former.

    But Phoenix?? It just doesn't make any sense.

    For the Celtics getting Mayo or Nick Young are real possibilities since both teams want ray and can do sign and trades with the celtics. Mayo is a better option though. As for other reports of JET and JCrawford, they are both solid options as well.
