Ray Allen to the Heat?

Ray-allen-jump-shot_medium

The end of the season could mean the end of the Boston Celtics as we currently know them. KG and Ray Allen are free agents at the end of the year, Pierce will have a year left on his contract and the team could look to trade him. Trade rumors swirled around Rondo around the trade deadline, and he could possibly be moved. Why is this interesting for the Heat? Ray Allen. According to Marc Stein of Yahoo! Sports, the Heat are expected to make a strong push for the league's all-time best 3pt shooter.

To me this seems a long shot, since he will have to take a huge pay cut and reduced playing time. Although he is not desperate for a ring, he will surely like another one before he hangs it up, and there will be a ton of teams that will request his services, many of whom can offer more money than us. He would be a tremendous guy to have in the locker room, another guy that shuts up and plays the game, he is a tireless worker, first in the gym, last to leave. He brings championship qualities and know how, and the ability to knock down the clutch shot.

Also, there are very few players currently in the league, or all-time, that you would rather have at the free throw line in any situation. No doubt he brings a lot to the table, and would be an outstanding get for us, but is he willing to take a huge pay cut and possibly come off the bench?

If we replace Miller with Ray Ray, i will be all for this move.
