That means Allen will probably end up choosing between the Celtics and the Miami Heat. Allen is scheduled to visit the Heat today.
Notably, Crawford’s contract is for 4 years and $25M (a year more than the initial report suggested). That’s a lot of dough for an aging shooting guard and might have some influence on Allen’s thinking.
The Celtics are offering a comparable 2 years and $12M (with a possible no-trade clause or trade kicker) while the Heat can offer no more than $3M per year.
