Ray Allen goes hunting for another title:


It is believed Allen will accept the Heat's mid-level exception that starts at $3.09 million and could be worth a maximum of $9.5 million over three seasons. 

"#HeatNation please welcome our newest teammate Ray Allen #Wow #JesusShuttlesworth," LeBron James tweeted Friday night. Boston, where Allen had played for the past five seasons and won a championship in 2008, had offered Allen a two-year deal at double the salary for $12 million plus a no-trade clause. 

The Boston Herald reported Allen was seeking a three-year, $27 million deal.

I've never been one to hold it against players who do title-shopping. In my days of football fandom, it often went horribly wrong. But it basketball it seems like a smarter bet. I do admit to thanking the basketball gods when Karl Malone failed in his bid with the Lakers. I know. I'm not a nice man.
