Ray Allen has been a fixture in the Boston Celtics’ “Big Three” for the past few seasons.
With the emergence of point guard Rajon Rondo, the “Big Four” have become even more prevalent.
This season, Allen passed Reggie Miller with the most three-point field goals in history. The Celtics will rely on Allen’s outside shooting if they plan on making a run to the NBA Finals.
He may be 35, but he has shown flashes of brilliance in big spots this season.
Depending on what direction the Celtics are heading, Allen may become available.
The Celtics have the explosive Jeff Green—a restricted free agent—who is worthy of a starter’s role. Green could slide into the small forward spot with Paul Pierce filling in at shooting guard.
I’m not saying the Celtics should do this, but if they do, Allen would a top free-agent target.
He’s proven he can still light up the basket from downtown, and would therefore draw much attention.
