While team president Danny Ainge has remained mum on the potential free agency of Ray Allen, Doc Rivers said this afternoon that he wants the sharpshooter to return with a new contract. Allen's five-year contract that he signed in 2005 with the Seattle SuperSonics is expiring July 1 and he will be an unrestricted free agent.

"I think I've said in the middle of the year, hopefully we sign Ray back," Rivers said. "I think I can say that, if not I just got fined [for tampering]."

Allen has said several times this season he would like to remain in Boston and understands he could be considerably less than the $19.7 million he is earning this season. Rivers's statement is the first organizational comment about his potential return.
