There were reports going around the the Sonics were shopping and trying to gauge Ray Allen’s value. Frank Hughes reports:
Meanwhile, two league sources said the Sonics are calling around the league to gauge interest in guard Ray Allen.
KJR-AM radio reported that the Sonics offered Allen to the Boston Celtics for the fifth pick and Theo Ratliff.
As interesting as it would be to add a player like Ray Allen for just Theo and #5, I don’t think we should pull the trigger. Allen and Pierce don’t seem to be a duo to mesh and Allen is oft injured and only getting older. If this were a deal three years ago, I pull the trigger. Today, I won’t give it a second thought. Perhaps Ainge goes out and gets Amare if the Suns are willing to part with him for KG…
