If You Can’t Beat Them, Join Them – Ray Allen Leaves Celtics For Miami
Ray Allen agreeded to sign with the Miami Heat for the mini mid-level exception worth $3.09 million a season, according to team owner Micky Arison, who tweeted the news Friday night.
“Its 2:30am in London and I was just woken up with great news. Welcome to the family #20!!” Arison wrote on Twitter.
Allen, who spent the last five seasons with the Boston Celtics, met with Heat officials Thursday and made his final decision Friday afternoon.
Allen’s agent, James Tanner, confirmed the decision in an email to USA TODAY Sports shortly after Arison’s tweet.
Allen considered a return to the Celtics but ultimately decided to join the Heat because he felt it gave him the best chance to compete for another championship.
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade had been aggressively recruiting Allen in recent days.
