The Oklahoma City Thunder open free agency with their roster pretty much intact from last season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder aren't expected to make sweeping changes to their roster this offseason but there could be some mutual interest between the club and free agent shooting guard Ray Allen says Fox Sports' Sam Amico.

Allen has drawn quite a bit of interest from the Miami Heat but is now reportedly the top priority of Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics. The Celtics are also willing to double Miami's reported offer of $3 million a season.

It may take every bit of that to convince Allen who was not happy with coming off the bench in a sixth man role while battling back from an ankle injury. If Allen decides that he has had enough of Boston then he will likely look for an opportunity with a contender and that is where teams like Miami and potentially Oklahoma City could come in.
