Ray Allen rumors have the LA Clippers and San Antonio Spurs interested now. These Allen rumors have been going on for months and it seems quite a few contending teams would love to have his services for the 2014-15 NBA season. According to a report from ESPN on Saturday (Aug. 30), this adds the teams to a list that already includes the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and Dallas Mavericks. That’s a lot of love for an 18-year veteran of the league who may be on his last legs.
The interest from the Cavaliers is pretty obvious, as LeBron James would like him to be a teammate once again. It would seem that if Allen is only playing for the shot at another ring, that this might be the best fit for him. If he is looking for a nice payday, it won’t come from the Cavs, though, because they only have basically the veteran’s minimum to offer. For all these teams he could be the perfect three-point specialist to come off the bench for a few minutes a night.
Last season, Allen played for the Heat, averaging 26.5 minutes and 9.6 points a night. He was down to 37.5 percent shooting from three-point range, so that might be a warning sign about what he has left. These Ray Allen rumors have been going on for a while because it didn’t seem like he was ready to commit to a new team when the offseason began. It’s still also possible that he could simply decide to retire from the NBA and begin preparing his speech for the Basketball Hall of Fame induction.
