Ray Allen To Sign With Heat, Tweets Owner Micky Arison

Free agent guard Ray Allen was torn between signing with the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. Allen was finally able to come to a decision even after leaving Miami with a contract. According to Heat owner Micky Arison, Jesus Shuttlesworth will be bringing his talents to South Beach.

Allen will be entering his 17th season in the NBA, spending the past five seasons with the Boston Celtics after being acquired in a trade with the then Seattle SuperSonics. The Heat were looking for another three-point shooter to replace Mike Miller, and Ray Allen was looking to try and add another ring towards the end of his career.
