Boston, MA - The Boston Celtics have re-signed guard Ray Allen, the team announced Tuesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but reports from last week said Allen agreed to a two-year, $20 million contract.

"Re-signing Ray has been a priority of ours this offseason and this move will allow us to stay at a championship level," said Danny Ainge, Celtics president of basketball operations.

Allen averaged 16.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game over 80 contests last regular season. He also averaged 16.1 points during the team's playoff run, which ended with a Game 7 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals.

During the championship series, Allen set an NBA Finals record by sinking eight three-point shots in a Game 2 victory.

"I am ecstatic to be back in Boston," Allen said. "I cannot wait to get onto the court and get back to work with the rest of the team in pursuit of Banner 18."

Over 14 seasons in the NBA, Allen has averaged 20.5 points in 1,022 games. He ranks second in NBA history in three-pointers made (2,444) and attempted (6,176).
