The Washington Wizards have been the most aggressive suitor for Ray Allen.
The Wizards have reportedly been calling constantly in an effort to sign the legendary 3-point shooter, but there is no indication that Allen would want to sign in Washington. Regardless of where he lands, owners outside of really deep leagues can feel free to leave him on the wire. Jan 22 - 3:22 PM

Ray Allen said he's staying in shape in case any NBA teams call as the second half of the season approaches.

Allen had been reportedly leaning towards retirement, but he opened the door with a comment on Monday. "At my age I need to stay in shape," the 39-year-old said. Allen has kept in touch with former teammates (and current Cavaliers) LeBron James and Mike Miller, so the tea leaves would seem to say that he'd sign with the Cavs if he does return to the league. Regardless of what happens, Allen holds little fantasy value as a role player if and when he signs.

Ray Allen is reportedly leaning towards retiring despite interest from several different contending teams.

It would be great to see one of the best shooters in NBA history back out on the court but this news is a little troubling. Teams such as San Antonio, Washington, Chicago, Cleveland, and Golden State have all shown interest so it is a little surprising that a deal hasn't been completed. Regardless, even if Allen does sign with a team he won't have a large enough role to matter in most leagues. We will pass along any updates as needed.

Doc Rivers confirmed the Clippers are interested in free-agent guard Ray Allen.

The Bulls, Cavs, Warriors and Grizzlies are known to be interested, and now we can add the Clippers to the list. Rivers and Allen have a history, so nobody should be surprised. "I have interest, yeah," Rivers said. "So add me." Rivers thinks Allen will start thinking about playing after the holiday season, but it's still not a lock he'll want to come out of retirement at that point.

Ray Allen has reportedly narrowed down his choices to San Antonio, Washington, Chicago, Cleveland, and Golden State.

While it would be great to see him back in the league, we can't see Allen having much value on any of these teams. At this point in his career, he would likely come off the bench and see limited action, so only owners in deep leagues craving 3-pointers should be ready to pounce when and if he latches on to a team. Stay tuned.

Warriors GM Bob Myers confirmed on Thursday that the Warriors have reached out to Ray Allen's representatives but said, "it's uncertain as to what Ray wants to do."

"Here's the problem," Myers explained. "We don't have enough minutes as it is so it's just a question of chemistry." Allen would have close to zero value playing as a reserve for the Warriors, and he's made it clear he has no intentions of making a decision until February at the earliest, so this is just something to file away for now.

The Wizards have not checked on Ray Allen lately.

There is believed to be some interest on both sides, but nothing is imminent. Allen is likely going to sign with a contender and the Wizards made it clear they're going to contend for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. There is no need to stash Allen in fantasy leagues, though.

Ray Allen is being eyed by contending teams as he keeps himself in shape in Miami.

Teams like the Bulls, Spurs, Cavs and Wizards are among the clubs watching Allen from a distance, but this is what we've known for months and there's no need to rehash old information. Allen may join a team for a playoff run this season, and if he does, it will be to chase another ring. There is nothing to suggest he's planning an imminent return.

Ray Allen's visit to Chicago has nothing to do with the Bulls, according to his agent.

While Allen has been spotted in Chicago, his agent said there is nothing brewing between the Bulls and the free agent. Allen isn't known to be a Blackhawks fan, but there's always the possibility he's in town to watch the Hawks host the Capitals on Friday night. Or perhaps he's taking an architecture river cruise on the Chicago River. Either way, there's apparently nothing to see here for fantasy owners.

Ray Allen said he's still undecided on his playing future, but added that he would only need a week to get ready to play.

The predominant thought around the NBA is that Allen will wait until the All-Star break to sign with a team and his latest quotes don't go against that theory. "I've just been home, taking my kids to school," said the 18-year veteran. "I'm working out, taking care of my body. I'm in great shape. I'll just watch how the season progresses, and if I do feel the desire to continue to play, then I'll decide what situation is viable for me." Fantasy owners in standard leagues don't need to worry about Allen, but he could help owners in deep leagues if he signs with a team like the Cavaliers as a sharpshooter.

Danny Ainge thinks that Ray Allen may wait until the All-Star break to sign with a team.

"He may wait until All-Star break or January," Ainge said. "And just see what teams are playing well, which teams are the healthiest and which team that he thinks that he might fit in, just in the style of play. With new coaches at some different places, he may just want to see how it unfolds before he makes a decision." Allen's clutch shot making ability would make him a welcome component to any championship contending team, and he's certainly earned the right to delay his decision as long as he sees fit. But with regards to fantasy basketball, Ray Allen is no longer a viable asset.

Ray Allen's agent dismissed rumors that Allen has agreed to a deal with the Cavaliers.

"Amid continued rumors and having spoken with Ray today, let me be very clear. Ray’s position has not changed," said his agent, Jim Tanner. "Ray has not decided if he will play this season nor has he signed [with Cleveland]." These rumors were never confirmed by Allen, his representatives, the Cavaliers or any reliable beat writer, and it's another reminder not to believe everything you read. That said, the prevailing belief around the league is Allen will eventually sign with the Cavs if he doesn't retire.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Ray Allen is not an option for the Clippers' final roster spot.

The Clippers tried to recruit Allen to come play in L.A. this offseason, but now are backing off their pursuit as the regular season approaches. Allen and Doc Rivers are obviously tied to one another due to their time in Boston, and despite a reportedly soured relationship, Doc still tried to bring Allen into the fold. He has been mulling retirement for the past few months and now has one less suitor to choose from.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are still hoping to add unrestricted free agent Ray Allen to their roster.

"Until he signs, that’s going to be a target for everybody," Cavaliers GM David Griffin said. "Ray is someone who fits us as a shooter. His championship pedigree fits us at a really high level. At the same time, it’s possible he’s not sure he wants to keep playing. He’s in no hurry to make a decision. We’ll play that out as far as we can." Allen only averaged 9.6 points and 1.6 three-pointers with Miami during the 2013-14 season, so he doesn't offer much fantasy value even if he does sign with the Cavaliers.

The Cavs are still hoping to land Ray Allen in free agency, according to G/F James Jones.

"I don’t need to say how much I want him here, how much we’d like for him to be here," Jones said. "That goes without saying." Allen could retire or he could end up with the Wizards, which would probably make Kevin Garnett cringe. Regardless, he won't have much fantasy value.
