Broussard checks in on Allen, Green

7/2/2012

ESPN's Chris Broussard was on SportsCenter on Monday morning to discuss what's shaping up to be a three-team race to sign free-agent Ray Allen. Here's his breakdown of what he thinks Allen is prioritizing:

"(Allen) wants to take his time and explore his options," Broussard says in the video above. "He has three things in mind when he looks at these teams: 1) What will my role be on the team? Will I be coming off the bench or will I be starting? 2) Can we contend for a championship? Obviously he wants to go to a team that has a chance to win a title. 3) The money that they're offering. The Miami Heat can only offer $3 million a year, that puts them at a disadvantage, although for months now Ray has looked at the Heat and thought it was a good destination for him."

Broussard also slipped in this interesting nugget on Celtics free-agent Jeff Green:

"His agent, David Falk, told me Boston is the first, second and third option for Jeff Green."
