Ray Allen, one of the greatest shooters in NBA history could be foregoing his retirement and returning to the NBA.
According to ESPN, Allen’s representatives have reached out to the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, about possibly joining these championship teams.
Allen, who will be 41 later this month, is not completely sure whether he’ll officially return. He sat out the past two seasons, but is interested in possibly winning another championship. Along with the Warriors and Cavs, Allen would be interested in joining the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers, according to sources.
Allen played in the NBA for 18 years and made a name for himself with his shooting. He averaged 9.6 points per game with the Miami Heat in 2013-14, his final season. The 10-time All-Star averaged 18.9 points over his career and shot 40 percent from the arc.
Allen, a future Hall of Famer, won NBA championships with the Boston Celtics in 2008 and Miami in 2013. His performance in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals is one of the most memorable in NBA history. Allen hit a game-tying three-pointer with five seconds left on the clock to force overtime and and eventual Game 7 against the Spurs. Miami would go on to win the championship that season.
