Since dropping Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Miami Heat less than a month ago, Doc Rivers and the Boston Celtics have been looking for any and every way to improve their chances at capturing another title next season.
Once Kevin Garnett agreed to return for three more seasons in Boston, the focus turned to which players would surround the Big Ticket in the Celtics' pursuit of Banner 18.
Jason Terry was the first free agent to jump on board, signing a three-year, $15 million offer sheet to join the Celtics. Terry's addition gives the C's some much-needed scoring off the bench, something the team lacked during their most recent playoff run.
The addition of JET leaves one Boston veteran's spot on the team in limbo, though. Ray Allen was looked at as the likely sixth man and primary bench option for the Celtics heading into the new season. And while Allen has expressed a desire to return to the team, the Miami Heat's courtship of the 10-time All Star and his suddenly uncertain role in the C's offense has pushed him into a tough decision.
So while Terry is likely to sign his deal with the Celtics next week, Allen may very well be changing jerseys. That begs the question — which player would you rather have on the Celtics roster next season?
