Danny Ainge thinks Ray Allen might wait until All-Star break to sign
What will Ray Allen do?
But Celtics president Danny Ainge, whose team employed Allen for five years, might provide some insight.
Ainge on 98.5 the Sports Hub, as transcribed by A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN Boston:
Allen famously keeps himself in great shape. If he has continued his training regimen while a free agent, he’ll have no trouble adjusting if he signs late.
Why put himself through the tediousness of training camp, preseason and early regular season games? Why lock in with a team that might not play as well as expected?
It makes sense for Allen to wait.
Because Allen was not waived, the Feb. 28 deadline does not apply to him. He can sign anytime and join a playoff roster.
