The NBA’s all-time leader in three-pointers made, guard Ray Allen remains a free agent.
There is a chance Ray Allen retires but most seem to think he will wait a few months – possibly until the All-Star break – and then sign with a contender. The Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be the heavy favorite to land Ray Allen but other contenders like the Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs are very interested as well.
One team that surprisingly tried to lure Ray Allen is the Milwaukee Bucks. He started his NBA career in Milwaukee but he clearly is looking to go somewhere where he can win a third NBA title. Still, Bucks’ head coach Jason Kidd admitted he contacted Ray Allen.
“We did contact Ray,” Kidd said via Charles F. Gardner of The Milwuakee Journal Sentinel. “He’s weighing his options to see where he wants to go. But we did have interest.”
The Bucks believed it could not only be a homecoming but Ray Allen could help teach young, potential stars like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker.
“We thought, just like the fans, that it might be a good situation for him to be able to come back and also teach the young guys,” Kidd said.
Ray Allen averaged 9.6 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game while shooting 44.2% from the field, 37.5% from three and 90.5% from the free throw line last season. In his historic career, he has averaged 18.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game while shooting 45.2% from the field, 40.0% from beyond the arc and 89.4% from the free throw line.
