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.
