Brousard reporting the Celtics will double any Heat offer to Ray Allen since the heat can only offer 3mil a year.

Also, the NBAPA is filing a greivence for Dwight Howard to make him a FA this summer because the Magic haven't held up their end of the opt-in negotiations in making the team better. WTF??? It's day one of free agency, give it some time.
Quote:
[s]ince then he has grown increasingly disgruntled with the organization, even telling people close to him that he feels the Magic "blackmailed" him into signing the "opt-in" clause. Howard feels the Magic made promises that have not been kept to get him to sign.

Howard shared his feelings of being blackmailed by the Magic with the NBA Players Association last week, sources said. He — either himself or through his representatives — approached the union wondering if he might have a legal complaint against the club.
Apparently threatening to trade you to a shitty team if you don't waive your opt-out option is blackmail now.
