LeBron James campaigned last week for Allen to join the NBA champions, but it’s not a slam dunk. Allen no doubt would have to take less money to join the Heat’s superstar-laden roster than he could get elsewhere. Miami is in position to offer only their mini mid-level that starts at $3.09 million; the Boston Celtics have offered a two-year, $12-million deal to keep him. The Clippers, Aldridge reports, have their entire mid-level of $5 million available.
While watching the Draft my son Bryce ask “Is Ray Allen gonna play for the Heat”. I said “I don’t know, I hope so”.— LeBron James (@KingJames) June 29, 2012
