NBA Rumors: Grizzlies To Bid On Ray Allen

The Memphis Grizzlies will attempt to woo Ray Allen when free agency begins Sunday, reports Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial-Appeal. The Grizzlies will reportedly offer Allen their full mid-level exception worth $5 million per season.

Allen, who has been with the Boston Celtics since the 2007-08 season, is an unrestricted free agent. At 36, he's the league's all-time leader in three-pointers made. Even in an injury-plagued 2011-12 season he hit more than 100 threes for the 13th consecutive season and shot 45 percent from behind the arc.

Boston, which reportedly locked up Kevin Garnett ahead of free agency, is believed to be interested in bringing Allen back, though for less money. Allen has also been linked to the Miami Heat, who knocked the C's out in the East finals on their way to the championship this season.

Allen will turn 37 in July. He's logged 48,000 minutes in the NBA, including the playoffs, over 15 seasons.
