The most controversial move was made this week, with Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen opting to accept a contract with the Miami Heat, thought to be three years with around $3 million per year, which is a substantial percentage less than the $9 million over twoyears offered by Boston.
Heat team owner Micky Arison was the first to break the news through his Twitter account, saying welcome to No. 20. This move puts the Heat in the position as thefavorites to win the title once again next year.
The Bulls also recently made a move to bring back veteran point guard Kirk Hinrich from the Atlanta Hawks in a deal that is reportedly around $3 million per year. The signing of Hinrich signals the inevitable release of C.J. Watson, who has been ridiculed for a last play blunder in the NBA playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Bulls are looking to trade Watson before the July 10 deadline when he will become an unrestricted free agent.
