Report: Allen to visit Heat, Clippers


Report: Allen to visit Heat, Clippers's David Aldridge reports that Ray Allen will visit with the Miami Heat on Thursday and the L.A. Clippers on Friday. The Celtics are still hopeful of bringing back Allen, but the NBA's all-time leader in three-pointers will listen to pitches in Miami and L.A., according to a source.

Allen had conference calls on Monday with the Grizzlies, as well as the Heat, Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves, according to the source. But Allen is not currently scheduled to make visits to Memphis or Minnesota.The Heat can only offer Allen their mini mid-level exception that starts at 3.09 million next season, the same exception Miami used last year to sign free-agent forward Shane Battier. The Clippers have their full mid-level available at 5 million. Boston has offered Allen a two-year deal for 12 million.
