Edit: one thing bothers me a bit here. I don't really understand the NBA cap but I have heard that if they are above a certain salary figure-70 million-maybe-but below the tax threshold they get the full MLE. [I][But/I]if they do not get to that figure they do not have that five million dollar MLE. Is that correct?
I imagine the Celtics will just spend to that figure no matter if they get Allen or not so it is excellent news either way.
As long as they don't renounce any of their free agents, they are over the cap and can use the MLE. If the Mavs re-sign him, it'd be a shocker.
