Ray Allen Wants Multi-Year Contract With Boston Celtics

New, 1 comment

Ray Allen is 36 years old and great friends with the fountain of youth, so it's natural that he wants to play for years to come.

Allen told Fox Sports Florida's Chris Tomasson that he would like to continue playing in the NBA until the age of 40 and would like to sign a multi-year deal with the Boston Celtics when his contract expires after this season.

"My body feels good," Allen said. "Whenever you're with a great organization, it makes it easier, and it makes it funner, and it gives me a great chance to play until I'm 40. I don't know how many guys in the history of this league have done it."

Allen has made 22 three-pointers through six games this season, tied with Ryan Anderson atop the NBA, and has made 61.1 percent of his long-distance attempts.
