2010 NBA Free Agent Predictions: Where Will Ray Allen Land?

June 7th, 2010 by Tim Wood Leave a reply »
Hello, hot commodity of the day. Before Sunday night, Celtics guard Ray Allen was being discussed as a mid-level exception for a contender or a team that lands a big free agent. Boston had two contract worries heading into the 2009-2010 season. They moved quickly in locking up Rajon Rondo shortly after the season began. Allen was initially talking contract extension, but the talk dried up quick. By February, pundits were saying the C's made a great move in not re-upping the soon-to-be-35-year-old. How you feeling about that now? Allen broke his own NBA Finals record with eight three-pointers last night en route to 32 key points in Boston's Game 2 win in L.A. He lived up to his image as the purest shooter in the league and a veteran who can still be a No. 1 option. With a spree of swishes, Allen has gone from a forgotten free agent option that was a mid-level exception option at best to a solid backup plan for a team that doesn't land the big fishes. What is the reality of Allen's value? Who is truly courting him and where is the best fit? We have five thoughts on the matter.
