SportsCenter 5 has just learned that The Celtics and Ray Allen have agreed on a 2 year contract worth 20 million dollars giving Doc Rivers at least one more chance to win it all with the Big 3.
Allen’s signing follows Paul Pierce’s agreement to a 4 year contract worth over 61 million dollars which represents somewhat of a hometown discount considering Dirk Nowitsky just signed a 4 year deal worth 80 million dollars.
Kevin Garnett has 2 more years on his contract so if Ray Allen does not opt out of his contract after this next season, the Big 3 will have at least 2 more shots at winning it all.
Now it’s time to find a big body to fill in for Kendrick Perkins while he rehabs from major knee surgery. Shaq? -I don’t think so- he is the anti-Garnett, on the (fat) lazy side. Not that Rasheed wasn’t pretty much the same but Rasheed wore on Doc and most everyone else on the team so I don’t know how much patience Doc and the Celtics have to put up with another one of those.
