That could mean spending at least 1/2 of the season on a bad team in a small market where people would forget about him. Reaching a buyout to join a contender would mean forfeiting some of this money and ending up on a contender relegated to a bench player.


If Allen opted out he can get a 2-3 year contract for the MLE, and decide which team he wants to join based on playing time/role.
I don't see Allen (or any professional NBA player) doing that unless he's had an extensive talks with the organization. It's not like NBA players are stupid, all of them have agents and lawyers just like the organizations. By saying Allen exercised the option is also like saying the team and allen both agreed to give it one more year.

Allen wouldn't have been able to get the same money on the market and the C's wouldn't have any cap space still if he left. He was alwasy coming back. HE might have been their best player last year so its a good thing for him. Just get some help for the old guys now!

This is a business. Both Allen and Garnett's contracts are huge and expiring. They don't have to promise Ray anything, and they shouldn't.

Ray's better off staying in Boston.
First of all, he gets the 10Mil.
Second of all, At the rate he's going, he can keep playing till he's 40. Shooters like him don't rely on athleticism a lot.
As long as Rondo's still here, he can still do his thing here. And retire as a Celtic.

Certainly not. Ray opted in because he wants to keep playing, he can't get more money and Boston is a potential contender(in their eyes at the least). Boston certainly didn't mutually agree to something or it would be a mutual option. Go get the MLE, if there even is one

I'm sure we've discussed this before, Gibson, Brewer and Korver. I'd pull the trigger, especially if next season doesn't start very well...

This is probably the last year for Garnett-Allen-Pierce, unless KG and RA decide to take huge paycuts next year and also reduced minutes.

I understand your point , but he is a multi millionaire , and he is playing for another chip

Problem is as the roster stands , Celtics won't be in the ECF's until new blood arrives. If he would of went free agent , and came back with min. vet pay , the Celtic's could of got another piece...
He locks the Celtics up (.)

Celtics could very well be in the ECF again next year as long as they dont run into Miami in the Semi finals like they did this year.
