Report: Allen could opt out of Miami in 2013

According to a report in The Miami Herald, former Celtics guard Ray Allen has a two-year contract with the Heat that includes a $3.2 million player option for 2013-14, allowing Allen the option to become a free agent again next summer.

Previous reports indicated the deal was for three years and $9 million, with no mention of a player option.

The story by Barry Jackson, crediting sources with direct knowledge, indicates that Rashard Lewis -- who signed with the Heat last week after being bought out by the Hornets -- has a similar option.

Mashup: Knicks vets question Lin's contract

With reports leaking out from New York that the Knicks might change course and let Jeremy Lin go to the Rockets, Carmelo Anthony called Lin's renegotiated offer from Houston -- which includes a $14.9 million salary in the third year of the three-year deal -- "ridiculous."

The way the contract is structured makes it difficult for New York to match, and the Knicks appear prepared to instead go with a point guard rotation of Raymond Felton (reportedly headed East in a sign-and-trade with the Trail Blazers) and Jason Kidd (who was arrested Sunday morning for DWI only days after signing a free agent deal).

Knicks coach Mike Woodson insisted last week that the team would match the Rockets' offer to Lin, but that was before Houston altered it to ensure that the Knicks would have to go well over the salary cap to keep the former Harvard star.

"I can't talk about it," Woodson said Sunday.

Middlebrooks, Sox power past Rays

Optimists in Boston have been preaching patience as the Red Sox start to return injured players to the lineup. On Sunday, two of those recently returned players -- Will Middlebrooks and Jacoby Ellsbury -- combined to go 6-for-9 and lead the Sox to a 7-3 victory over the Rays in the final game of a three-game series in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Middlebrooks, in his third game back from a hamstring strain that cost him a week, was 3-for-4 with a double and drove in two runs. Ellsbury, who injured his shoulder on April 13 and was out until this series, went 3-for-5 with a double.

Daniel Nava hit a home run off Rays starter James Shields (8-6) to lead off the fifth inning and put the Red Sox ahead for good at 4-3. Later in the inning, Middlebrooks ripped a two-run single up the middle with the bases loaded and one out for some insurance.

Cody Ross hit a sacrifice fly to score Ellsbury in the sixth inning for the game's final run.

Valentine: Youk never got past critique
By: DJ Bean

Bobby Valentine said prior to Sunday's game that his relationship with Kevin Youkilis never recovered from a comment he made about the veteran third baseman early in the season. 

Valentine told WHDH-TV's Joe Amorosino in April that he he didn't think Youkilis was "as physically or emotionally into the game as he has been in the past for some reason." The comment got lots of attention, especially when Dustin Pedroia said criticizing players wasn't how the Red Sox handled their business. Valentine said Sunday that Youkilis, who was traded to the White Sox last month, never got past it. 

“I think that the comment I made early, he made a big issue out of," Valentine said. "And I don't think he ever wanted to get over it."

Asked what their relationship was like following the comment, Valentine said, "It was whatever he wanted it to be." 

"Like I said," Valentine added,...
