NBA Rumors: Ray Allen still undecided about playing next season

Ray Allen might be 39 years old, but the guy can still play. He averaged a respectable 9.6 points per game on 37.5 percent shooting from beyond the arc this past season with the Miami Heat.

Still, Allen is continuing to contemplate retirement this summer, according to Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders.

Among the teams vying for Allen’s services: the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers certainly make sense for Allen because of their status as one of the best teams in the Western Conference and his relationship with Doc Rivers.

Still, the frontrunner to land Allen, if he returns, is the Cavaliers.

Cleveland is currently the favorite to emerge from the Eastern Conference and many believe that if Allen returns, he’ll want to play with his good friend and former Heat teammate, LeBron James. The two won a championship together with Miami in 2013.

Allen would fit in for either Cleveland or Los Angeles as a sharpshooter off the bench. Both teams are fairly deep and signing Allen would only make them more dangerous.

Allen is the most prolific three-point shooter in NBA history, with 2,973 makes throughout his illustrious career.
