NBA Rumor Mill | Ray Allen Trade Talk Heating Up

Ken Berger of recently posted a column that dove further into the possibility of Boston Celtics veteran guard Ray Allen going to a new home.

A number of teams have been discussed in possible trade scenarios, as the Chicago Bulls are in the mix to get some cap relief, while also acquiring some talent to help them continue their playoff push.

The Celtics feel the same way.

They know that Allen is slowly regressing, but they also know that he still holds value. They’ve been rumored to be interested in Sacramento’s Kevin Martin (who doesn’t seem to be too untouchable), and even envision Kirk Hinrich as a suitable replacement at shooting guard.

      We’re not deciding anything, just reporting the rumors, Mr. bball.

      This is a reported rumor, and it does make sense. Hinrich may not be a great percentage guy, but he is a solid shooter, and has great range on his jumper. He also is an elite defender, and five years younger than the aging Allen. He may not be the ideal fit, true, but he’s a better fit for the Celtics right now than Allen is.
