San Antonio, TX, United States (4E Sports) – Aside from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers are also eyeing the services of veteran shooter Ray Allen.
According to league sources, the Spurs and Clippers have joined the Cavaliers in convincing Allen to join their respective line-ups.
The Spurs have only one open roster spot at the moment while the Clippers could use a shooter of Allen’s caliber.
The Cavaliers have been considered a frontrunner for Allen’s services since LeBron James decided to return to his home-state team in July.
However, the competition for Allen’s signature is now fierce with the Spurs and Clippers joining the fray. Some sources said that the Dallas Mavericks and some Western Conference contenders are also interested in Allen.
Last month, Allen announced that he has yet to decide if he will return for a 19th NBA season.
“It’s August and I don’t want to rush to judgment,” Allen said. “I want to get to September and see how I really feel.”
Allen has been a member of championship teams in Boston (2008) and Miami (2013) and holds the NBA record for most 3-pointers made both in regular-season play (2,973) and the postseason (385).
