Report: Allen could land in Chicago, Miami, New York

Just weeks after the Boston Celtics were eliminated from the playoffs by the Miami Heat, rumors surrounding Ray Allen's next team have already begun to circulate.

Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix was on the Dennis & Callahan show last week and he said he believes that Allen will have multiple suitors.

"There is going to be a ton of interest in Ray Allen in the offseason," Mannix said. "He's going to be able to pick and choose where he wants to play."

Mannix believes that Miami, New York, and Chicago are the most likely landing spots for the NBA's all-time leader in 3-pointers made.

Mannix added that Allen could possibly return to the Celtics, but his strained relationship with Rajon Rondo may keep him from signing with Boston.

Turner jokes that Celtics will retire his number

Turner jokes that Celtics will retire his number

It’s not the craziest thing someone has said on Twitter, but Evan Turner tweeted Monday that the Celtics should retire his number. 

It was a joke, of course, as the former Celtic was reacting to news that Isaiah Thomas had said he liked the No. 11 and would change his jersey number if so many people in Boston hadn’t already purchased his No. 4 jersey. 

After Turner joked that No. 11 was going to be retired, Thomas joked back that he would wear No. 11 as a tribute to the current Trail Blazer. 

Prior to being traded to Boston, Thomas wore No. 22 for Sacramento and No. 3 for Phoenix.
