MANILA, Philippines – The Boston Celtics are making a big splash this off-season, after the veteran squad added combo guard Jason Terry.

Terry agreed to a three-year deal with Boston, for a contract worth $15.6 million.

The 34-year-old Terry has played the last eight seasons with the Dallas Mavericks and was instrumental in their victory in the 2011 NBA Finals over the Miami Heat.

But Terry’s signing can also mean that free-agent shooting guard Ray Allen is on his way out of Boston.

Allen is expected to visit the reigning champion Miami Heat on Friday, where he will listen to Miami’s pitch.

The most the Heat can afford to sign Allen is their $3-million mini mid-level exception, which comes along with a chance to play for a title alongside LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Aside from the Heat, Allen will also visit the Los Angeles Clippers. -- Reports from ANC and Yahoo! Sports.
