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. Nov 6 - 12:33 PM

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.

The Wizards have again reached out to Ray Allen to gauge his interest in joining the organization.

Allen is still undecided on whether or not he'll retire, but if his goal is to chase a championship, it seems unlikely he would choose Washington over say San Antonio or Cleveland. Allen's prolific, and clutch three-point shot making ability makes him an enticing asset for a championship contender, but as a specialist off the bench, his fantasy value would be nearly non-existent.
Sep 19 - 5:27 PM

Ray Allen has reportedly been contacted by "almost a dozen" teams, including the Bulls, but he's still hasn't committed to playing this season.

The Wizards, Spurs, Clippers and Cavaliers have been explicitly linked to Allen, and it's probable that most playoff contenders have at least reached out to him. The 39-year-old can dictate when and where he'll spend his final years in the NBA, serving as a reserve 3-point specialist in the pursuit of his third NBA championship.

The Wizards reportedly contacted free agent Ray Allen early in free agency to gauge his interest in signing with Washington.

Allen hasn't even decided whether he'll play this season or retire, and he's also being pursued by championship contenders like the Cavaliers, Clippers and Spurs. The Wizards, in other words, are a longshot to land the 39-year-old sniper.
Sep 2 - 5:58 PM

Ray Allen is in no rush to make a decision on his NBA future.

The 39-year-old is reportedly weighing retirement against playing for a top contender, but it doesn't sound like he's close to a decision. "I'm not in any rush [to make a decision]," Allen said. "I've played 18 years, and the way I look at my career, I'm content with everything that I've done." While the Spurs, Cavaliers, and Clippers have all expressed interest in Allen, he doesn't hold much fantasy value at this point in his career.

While the Heat would love for unrestricted free agent Ray Allen to return to Miami, they understand that that is an unlikely scenario.

Those close to Ray say that he's conflicted about whether to retire or sign with a top contender. The Spurs, Cavs, and Clippers have all expressed interest in acquiring the veteran's services, but as it stands right now, nothing is imminent. Allen would not offer much fantasy value wherever he lands.
Sep 1 - 10:02 AM

The Spurs are among the teams pursuing free agent Ray Allen, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Cavaliers have been in the hunt for Allen since LeBron James signed with the Cavaliers, and the Clippers and Mavericks are also interested in the NBA's all-time 3-point leader. Allen, a two-time NBA champion and 10-time All-Star, still hasn't ruled out retiring this summer at age 39.
Aug 30 - 9:15 AM

The Clippers will reportedly make a push to sign unrestricted free agent Ray Allen.

The Clippers will only be able to offer Allen the veteran's minimum (which is also true for the Cavs), but it's difficult to see him landing a more lucrative offer elsewhere. Whether he reunites with LeBron James in Cleveland, or Doc Rivers in Los Angeles, he should not be targeted in standard leagues.

The Cavs remain optimistic that they will be able to sign Ray Allen prior to the start of training camp.

Allen has stated that he's in no rush to make a decision, and he won't come to a conclusion until the end of September, but it's not outlandish to think he might team up with LeBron James in Cleveland. Wherever Ray lands, he'll be the teams' designated sniper off the bench, but he's unlikely to offer much value to owners in standard leagues.
