Judas Shuttlesworth not expected to opt in with Heat for 13-14

Reports are floating around that Ray Allen will not opt in for the remaining year on his 2 year $3.2 million deal he signed last offseason with the Heat. The deadline for him to decide is Saturday; however not opting in doesn’t mean he’s leaving the NBA champs. The Heat can actually resign him, making him their Non-Bird exception and sign a four-year deal with annual 4.5% raises.

They won’t be able to resign him officially till July 10th so stay tuned to see if he stabs another team in the back and continues his shooter-for-hire, top dollar mercenary persona. However Miami has come out and said that retaining Allen is top priority, so expect him to be back in south beach for next season.
