Ray Allen Exercises Player Option To Stay With Celtics

Boston’s Big Three will remain intact for at least one more year. Ray Allen has chosen to exercise his player option and suit up in green again next season.

Boston’s perimeter sniper will make $10 million next season in the second year of the deal he signed last summer. Allen is set to turn 36 on July 20 and will enter his fifth season with the Celtics.

Allen had one of his best shooting seasons in 2010-2011. He became the NBA’s All-Time Three-Point leader by passing Reggie Miller. He shot 49 percent from the floor and 44 percent from distance.

The move doesn’t come as much of a surprise to Celtics fans. Allen is nearing the end of his career and has expressed his love and admiration for Boston and it’s fans time and time again.

After the Celtics lost to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals Allen said:

“I have been full steam ahead with this team. I don’t have any plans to go anywhere else.”

Ray loves Boston and Boston loves Ray and the love affair will continue for one more year.

Hi I'm Brian Moller and I am addicted to sports. I love everything that involves my Boston sports teams. I'm pursuing a career in sports journalism. I've been lucky enough to have done internships at Comcast SportsNet New England and WHDH 7 News in the sports department. During those internships I've been in the locker room and on the field talking to some of Boston's biggest stars. I also host my own ridiculous sports talk show on my town's local access channel called Sports Ch@t. Hope you enjoy my writing and hopefully I'll be coming through your TV someday.
