As expected, Ray Allen is turning into a hot commodity. What team with the possibility of signing Lebron doesn’t want the world’s best shooter to flank the world’s best player?
#Cavs also expected to contact shooting guards Ray Allen, John Salmons and Mike Miller at some point on July 1.
It seems re-signing Paul Pierce might be quick and painless, but I’ve got the feeling Ray is going to get all kinds of offers before it’s all said and done.
On another note, Mike Miller’s stock is inexplicably rising to unforeseen levels. Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Miller has become a wanted man, and that his initial offers are expected to be worth more than the mid-level exception. To which I say, huh? What team in its right mind values Miller at more than the mid-level exception? Is this a joke? Don’t get me wrong, Miller’s a valuable piece. But why handcuff so much cap space on Mike Miller? If you have enough cap space to spend more than the mid-level exception, aren’t there bigger fish to fry? Aren’t there? If Miller gets more than the mid-level exception, my theory that Isiah Thomas is ghost-GMing for a few teams will be confirmed.
