Update: Allen will sign a two-year, $6.3 million contract with the Heat, and rejected a two-year, $12 million contract to remain with the Celtics. However, he will not officially be able to sign with the team until July 11.
According to sources who spoke to Yahoo! Sports, Allen had began to feel unappreciated by Boston, and had a deteriorating relationship with their upcoming star Rajon Rondo.
"He felt he was getting respect that he hadn't gotten from [Celtics president] Danny [Ainge] and [coach] Doc [Rivers] anymore," their source says. "...The presentation was incredible."
