Sources: Allen Top FA Target for HEAT
If the Miami Heat have it their way, they’ll have a commitment from Ray Allen within hours of Sunday’s start of free agency. The longer the process plays out, the less it may favor them.
The Heat, according to sources, have made Allen their prime offseason target and will pursue him strongly when free agency opens Sunday at 12:01 a.m. ET.
They intend to offer him their $3 million mini-mid-level exception, a chance to win another title and significant playing time as they continue with the plan to play LeBron James as a power forward in the future. Heat players, including James and Dwyane Wade, have been publicly and privately recruiting Allen over the last month.
