Ray Allen is torn between playing for the Heat or Celtics next season, sources tell ESPN.com. ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst writes that Allen left a meeting with Heat officials Thursday night without accepting or declining Miami's offer.
The Associated Press had previously reported the Celtics have offered Allen, the NBA’s 3-point field goal leader, a $12 million, two-year deal. The Heat — who have ousted Boston from the past two NBA postseasons — can only offer Allen the mini mid-level exception, which would pay about $3 million this coming year.
