New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) – Veteran shooting guard Ray Allen is not rushing his decision on where to possibly play next season and said he’s content upon the idea of retiring.
In an interview with the Hartford Courant, Allen stated he is not committed to play in his 19th season.
Allen is content with his significant achievements after 18 years of playing pro-ball in the NBA.
“I just want to take this summer and see how it goes,” he added.
The two-time NBA champion is in great shape but that does not mean he needs to play for another year.
Allen’s family is playing a very crucial role to him in this decision making phase.
A number of teams expressed their interest on Allen, but reports are saying the Cleveland Cavaliers are the most interested party in getting the vet sharp-shooter’s services.
If Allen joins the Cavs, he will be reunited with teammates LeBron James, Mike Miller, and James Jones.
Allen is no longer a prolific scorer like he was with Milwaukee, Seattle, and Boston.
But he proved last year he is still reliable and can play a very imprtant role coming off the bench. He struggled mightily in game five of the finals vs. the Spurs, however, when he was inserted into the starting lineup and failed to provide a spark.
The 6-foot-5 shooter averaged 9.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2 assists last season with the Miami Heat.
