Say it isn't so!

The Phanatic Magazine is reporting today that Celtics guard and former Villanova star Allan Ray has been sent down to the Celtics' NBDL affiliate in Austin, Texas.

Update: The Celtics' Web site now confirms Ray's re-assignment:

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have assigned rookie guard Allan Ray to their NBA Development League affiliate Austin Toros. Ray is the team's first assignment to the NBA Development League this season and the 19th NBA player to be assigned to the Development League. [...]The 6'2" guard out of Villanova will be coached by former Boston Celtics point guard Dennis Johnson with Austin who is in its first year as an affiliate of the Celtics.


Hopefully the NBA legend DJ will be able to show Ray some of his stuff. Ray's first game for the Toros should be on Feb. 23 at home against Fort Worth.

The news about ARay is true. Here's the link on the Celtic's webpage: http://www.nba.com/celtics/news/press022007-ray-dleague.html . While I enjoyed seeing him on an NBA roster, I don't think he was ready. Maybe he'll come back stronger, smarter, and with more of a dependable shot.

I'm not sure how much Dennis Johnson is going to be able to help him now...
