(NEW YORK) — Guard Ray Allen has told people close to him that he willl play next season instead of retiring, according to ESPN NBA Insider Chris Broussard.
Broussard also reports that while the Cleveland Cavaliers are the favorites to land Allen, the 39-year-old hasn’t made up his mind on where he’ll play.
Allen, the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-pointers made, played the last two seasons with LeBron James and the Miami Heat. During that time he averaged 10.3 points and 2.8 rebounds while connecting on 40 percent of his 3-point attempts.
Allen has won two championships in his 19 NBA seasons and will only play for teams he considers title contenders.
