NBA Trade Rumors 2012: Ray Allen Could Be Moved, According To Report

The Celtics are one of the teams many believe could be active prior to today's NBA trade deadline, and President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge declared during a radio interview that there's a '50-50' chance the team makes a move.

Moreover, it appears that one of the players that could be moved is veteran guard Ray Allen, who according to Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski, is attracting interest from several teams.

Wojnarowski says that some teams are offering a quality young player to Boston, while others are offering a first round pick. Should a team ante up both a player and a pick, the Celtics may do it.

The seemingly ageless Allen is having another productive year for Boston, averaging nearly 15 points per game and shooting over 47 percent from beyond the arc. His skill set and expiring contract make him a valuable chip for the Celtics, but Ainge has not discounted the possibility of keeping his veteran core in tact for another run at a championship.
