Boston Celtics Looking to Replace Ray Allen With Jason Terry?

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.”

    Jet would be good replacement, but Celtics need to go after OJ Mayo and if they dont get him than Nick Young – its really time for them to get younger

  • Sam

    First off whoever accuses Ray Allen of betraying celtics is wrong. Celts wanted ship him out at trade deadline.

    Ray Allen needs go to Heat
    Jason terry need go to Heat

    Nash stay in Phoenix get the check and play until you’re 50 with that great

    Lets get mayo

  • The Mauve Avenger

    That would make Boston’s bench so much more respectable.

  • don the GSW fan

  • Heals

    You may not agree with his moves but one thing Ainge never does is get caught off guard/unprepared with no plan B (or C, or D or KG)…

  • Ethan

  • Heals

    I think cpt. marvel tokes up some of that good before he posts comments on here LOL.

    If Ray is lookin for one last payday, I can’t blame him. He won’t get it for Miami though. Maybe the Griz. Jet would be an ok bench player for the C’s but they should look for younger shooters…

  • Danny

    Oh,oh Jason Terry to Boston That is where a stop sign should be set up no pass bass no pass terry PLEAS dont do that.

  • TP

    Rather than spend time trying to find a replacement, just do what you need to do to keep Ray. It’s not complicated. Maybe just expensive.

    cosign = agree with.

    Cs need to let Shuttlesworth walk. Get Mayo and officially start transition to the Rondo era.

    Ray Allen on the Heat would be obscene!! Even, with the KG signing, Sullinger in the draft, I don’t think the C’s are going to the Eastern Conference Finals again. They were gassed at their Game 7, then were banged up pretty well, too. Ray understands these facts, and he is, probably, pissed that they want to bench him for Avery Bradley. They have to get younger and much more offensive production. Cosign: myself. Ray Allen takes great care of his body, the ankle injury will be a thing of the past. Ray Allen, with a vendetta, in Miami. Maybe, he can break the 3 record for a series.

    Ray? Pissed? Please, he was playing with a bone spur and Avery Bradley wasn’t. He couldn’t hit a jump shot all playoffs long. I kept waiting for him to get dialed in, 1 good night. Didn’t happen, only person he has to be upset with is himself. Business is busniess, you’re paid to perform, if you don’t, you hit the bench.
