NBA Rumors: Ray Allen is considering retirement


The Miami Heat are down 3-1 to the San Antonio Spurs and it’s starting to look like we could be seeing a very different Heat roster on the floor next season. While there is pretty consistent talk about whether or not LeBron James will opt out or not, there are a few other names to keep an eye on when it comes to what will happen to them this offseason.

Ray Allen is one of those names to watch as he’s no longer a young man and we’re eventually going to get to a point where he decides to retire.

Allen told the Miami Herald that while he’s to actively thinking about calling it a career, he’s not saying it’s something he won’t sit down and consider this offseason.

“I guess everything [is factored into the decision],” he said Thursday before the Heat lost to the Spurs, 107-86, in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. “You get away from it, you sit down and get an opportunity to think about it. It depends on how my body feels. I love the condition I’ve been in over the last couple of years. It’s just a natural progression.”

The big question at the moment in Miami isn’t if Allen will retire this offseason, it’s when will the offseason begin? Miami could very well have just one more game left in them this season and it could be Allen’s last ever in the NBA. It would be a shame of Allen went out with a whimper in Miami but it’s not as though he’s leaving behind anything less than an iconic Hall of Fame career.
