Free agent guard Ray Allen left Miami without giving the Heat an answer to their contract offer but remains undecided about where he will play next season, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, Allen is also receiving interest from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies but has no plans to visit either team.
The most the Heat can offer the 36-year old under the new collective bargaining agreement is a three-year, $9.5-million contract. The Celtics have already offered a reported deal of two years and $12 million, and are also reportedly willing to include assurances against trading the 16-year NBA veteran designed to allay his fears of being included in trade discussions.
Allen averaged 14.2 points this past season, shooting a career-best 45.3 percent from downtown. He required offseason ankle surgery to remove bone spurs that bothered him throughout Boston's playoff run.
