The free agency frenzy will start soon after the draft, and many Celtics are entering free agency.
Ray Allen, Tony Allen, and Nate Robinson headline the list of Celtics possibly making a uniform change.
Tony Allen brings a unique role to the team, similar to Dahntay Jones or Matt Barnes, as a defensive stopper whose defense outshines his offensive impact.
Allen defended the likes of Dwyane Wade, Lebron James, Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant in the playoffs and did a fantastic job in his play. Allen can jump out of the basketball court and occasionally surprises everyone with a monster dunk, however his real contributions come on the defensive end.
Allen wants to continue his time in Boston and should be resigned.
Nate Robinson was acquired at the trade deadline and had trouble finding his role on the team, until the playoffs at least. Robinson is a great complement to Rajon Rondo due to his great shot from anywhere on the court, and brings a spark off the bench.
When Robinson is in, he could run the point or Pierce can bring the ball up the court. Robinson had attitude problems in New York but fits in great with Boston's team and loves it in Beantown, just ask his buddy Shrek. Robinson has said he wants to stay a Celtic and should be resigned.
At the beginning of this season, Celtics fans campaigned for Allen being traded, but after the deadline he lit it up. Despite a streaky play in the playoffs, Allen had a great playoffs and a good season.
At this point in Ray Allen's career it makes sense for him to want to finish his career in Boston. In the next few slides, I will present two scenarios, one with Allen being resigned, one with Allen moving on. If Ray Ray moves on Celtics fans should thank him for his time in Boston and wish him luck on his next team. Both of these scenarios are based on the Celtics drafting James Anderson.
Boston should plan on saying bye to Marquis Daniels, Brian Scalabrine, Mike Finley, and Sheldin Williams.
