July 6, 2006 I am sure this is a contract similar to what Bynum signed last year. It may or may not mean that he will be on the regular season roster. I haven't heard where we have signed Powe yet but expect us to sign him also since we gave up a second rounder to get him. I am starting to get worried in that we are going to be the shortest team in the league. We need to get another big man as we are still weak in the middle and have an abundance of short wings and PGs.
BOSTON – The Boston Celtics announced today that the club has signed free agent guard Allan Ray. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

He averaged 15.4 points in 129 career games, grabbed 419 career rebounds, handed out 244 career assists, registered 138 career steals and made 312 career three-pointers – for an average of 36.7%.

Good move, Danny. He really seems to like the kid, so it makes sense to lock him up for the summer so that another team won't try to snatch him up. I thought Bynum was a pretty solid looking player who could have added some scoring punch off our bench last season, but Ainge decided to pass on him. Ray is a few inches taller and is a better shooter. We'll see if Ainge likes his game enough to bring him onto our parent team.
