The tango between Boston Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen and the Miami Heat goes on. ESPN's Brian Windhorst now reports that the future hall of famer Allen and newly-crowned champions Miami Heat have  "mutual interest" in one another, citing league sources.

The 36-year-old Allen is due to become a free agent this summer, and a host of teams have expressed interest in acquiring the three-point record holder. However, Miami would offer Allen the best chance to add to the one NBA title he won with the Celtics in 2008. The Heat brought on Mike Miller to be their three-point specialist this season, but the shooting guard was often hampered by injuries.
