by July 01, 2012


Several teams, including the Heat and the Grizzlies, have expressed interested in Ray Allen, and it appears the Celtics may be putting together a back-up plan in the case that their sharpshooter does indeed head elsewhere. Boston is looking to shooting guard Jason Terry to fill potentially Allen’s void, according to Yahoo! Sports: “Faced with the possibility of losing Ray Allen, the Boston Celtics are pursuing Dallas Mavericks free-agent guard Jason Terry, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Celtics are preparing themselves for the possible loss of Allen, and began the process of recruiting Terry after midnight ET Saturday, league sources said. The Mavericks still have interest in re-signing Terry. The Los Angeles Clippers also have emerged as suitors, sources said. The Celtics also have interest in Los Angeles Clippers free agent guard Nick Young, sources said.”
