The Cleveland Cavaliers have brought in LeBron James in free agency, and have a pending agreement to bring in Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love. The Cavaliers have been active pursuing other veteran free agents to round out the roster, and that includes James’ former teammate with the Heat, Ray Allen.
Allen has been taking his time to decide, but the Cavaliers are optimistic they can get him to sign before the start of training camp.
The Cavs are also optimistic about their chances of signing free agent guard Ray Allen prior to the start of training camp, a source said.

While they’re still working on Allen, they already got a big signing from defensive guru and former Dallas Mavericks star Shawn Marion.

With ever new signing, it looks more and more unlikely that anyone will be able to stop the Cavaliers as they go from a team loaded with superstars to a team loaded with superstars that is well rounded.
Like Marion’s niche, Allen has his own niche bringing a perimeter game that can help stretch the floor and create space to Cleveland.
