Hamilton, Monta Ellis, Kevin Martin, Andre Iguodala and Jason
Richardson. He knows he has no control over whether the Boston Celtics
send him to another team. He also knows he doesn’t want to go.
As Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline approaches, Allen has one
hope: He’d like to be starting for the Celtics when they face the Los
Angeles Lakers on Thursday.
According to multiple team sources, Allen will likely get his wish.
While the Celtics have spent the past few weeks exploring their trade
options with Allen, they don’t expect to move the veteran shooting
guard. The team is close to acquiring Nate Robinson from the New York
Knicks, probably in exchange for Eddie House and J.R. Giddens. But
Celtics president Danny Ainge called the potential for an Allen trade
It's simple. The Celtics never got an offer that blew them away. We've seen Ray struggle before and there's a pretty good chance he's going to snap out of this funk. I hope.
