Quantcast


Ray had a player option for this upcoming season and he's formally chosen to exercise it, meaning that he will be a Celtic next year. The option was for $10 million.

Ray will be 36 in July but still manages to perform on the court like he's 10 years younger. During this past season he shot career highs from the field (49%) and from three-point range (44%) all while breaking Reggie Miller's three-point record.

    Nice Mike. Last year I think we both posted that Ray re-signed within a couple minutes, but I beat you. This year you got it in 3 minutes earlier. Touche. lol.

    So it doesn't go to waste, here's what I said: "Works for me. Ray's numbers were fantastic last year and he was one of the healthiest Celtics. Ray has said he would be back next year the night the Celtics got eliminated, but if he was greedy he could have parlayed his All-Star season into a multi year deal with some team, but Ray has repeatedly said he wants to remain in Boston."

    Great pic btw.

    Ray Allen is a true Celtic and should be in the Celtics hall of fame as well as Paul and Kevin

    When no one would ever consider coming to Boston, because of the climate, Ray Allen recognized the Celtic legacy and willingly embraced going to Boston and becoming a Celtic.

    He embodies Celtics pride and seeing this makes me happy.
