Earlier tonight, it was reported that Ray Allen would be staying overnight in Miami as they talked about the parameters of a potential contract. This was the first piece of hard evidence that proved Ray was strongly considering leaving the Celtics for their chief rival.
Now, WSVN, the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale 7 News affiliate has reported that Ray Ray and the Heat were on the verge of signing a 3 year 11 Million dollar contract. If this proves to be true it will be tough for a lot of Celtics fans to swallow. While signing the 3-point champ to a 6M/Year deal at age 37 seems like a bit of a risk for the Celts, Ray became a champion at The Garden and was a beloved member during this 5 year run. Seeing him don a Heat jersey would be something none of us want to see.
