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. Aug 17 - 12:34 PM

Ray Allen is not pleased that the media has painted his recent home invasion as a silly prank, and has released a statement to address the issue.

"We want to correct the erroneous information being reported about the crime committed in our home this week," Allen said in his statement. "On Thursday morning at 2:30 a.m., my wife Shannon was awakened by loud voices in our bedroom where she had been sleeping with our four young children. She heard male voices loudly discussing our personal property and sat up in a state of alarm to find at least five people inside our bedroom with large flashlights... The suggestion that anyone can unlawfully enter into someone’s locked home and then into an occupied bedroom in the middle of the night without consequences is unsettling."

Seven 18- and 19-year-old teenagers trespassed into Ray Allen's home in Coral Gables, Florida at around 2 a.m. on Thursday morning.

His wife, Shannon Walker Allen, was home and scared the trespassers from their property. Nothing was stolen and the intruders said they thought the Allens had moved and just wanted to check out his place. Allen is expected to make his decision about next season soon.

Ray Allen said on Monday that there's no reason to wait for some secret inside source, because when he reaches a decision on his future, he'll just say it.

There's the non-update, update of the day. Allen has also stated that he's not planning on making a decision until September, so we've got some time to go before hearing the verdict. Stay tuned.

Jim Tanner, Ray Allen's agent told Yahoo! Sports that Ray is still undecided on whether or not he will suit up for another NBA season.

Tanner added that "any reports otherwise are false." Whether or not Allen decides to give it a go, he's not likely to receive enough minutes to be a viable asset in standard fantasy leagues.

Ray Allen intends to play next season, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com.

Cleveland is the frontrunner, but it's "not 100 percent definite," per Broussard. The Boston Globe said Allen was expected to play for the Cavs last month and not much has changed since then. If he does come back, Allen won't see major minutes off the bench and is likely just trying to add another ring.

If Ray Allen is to suit up for another season, there is no guarantee that he would be joining LeBron James in Cleveland.

"There's so much speculation about me going to Cleveland. I haven't even decided where I will play," Allen said. "I have not leaned towards Cleveland. I have not made any mention of going to Cleveland... A lot of teams want to be able to get me at the veteran's minimum. I still have an ego, too. I still have a service to provide, and teams still have to pay me what I feel my presence is worth." Allen averaged a career-low 9.6 points last season, but also shot 38 percent from beyond the arc, and it's no secret that he was a big part of Miami's championship run during the 2012-13 season. Stay tuned.
Aug 4 - 3:54 PM

Ray Allen is in no rush to make a decision about whether or not he will retire.

"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. I just want to take this summer and see how it goes... I don't want to go into a situation where I don't understand the coaching, don't understand the direction of the team." Allen takes remarkable care of his body, which is why at 39 years of age he's still seen as a commodity in the league. However, if Allen does decide to give it another go this season, he wouldn't be much more than a 3-point specialist off the bench, and he wouldn't have much fantasy appeal, if any.
Aug 3 - 1:42 PM

Ray Allen has not decided on if he's going to play next season.

Obviously that means he hasn't decided on joining up with LeBron James and the Cavs. The Boston Globe reported that Allen is leaning to the Cavs, which is still the most-likely outcome. He'll be coming off the bench on just about any team and he probably won't get more than 10 shots per game.

Ray Allen is leaning to signing with the Cavs, according to the Boston Globe.

He is expected to have MRIs on his legs to make sure they're healthy, so nothing will be official until after Thursday. Allen will be entering his 19th season and looked as healthy as ever with the Heat in 2013-14. He'll likely see minutes around 20 per game with the Cavs.
Jul 23 - 11:04 PM

Ray Allen is expected to get MRIs on his legs before making a decision on his retirement.

He didn't look like a guy who was drafted in 1996 last season and it would be a surprise to see him retire at this point. Allen is getting some interest from the Cavs, Rockets and Heat as a bench scorer. He will be back in the USA on Thursday after a trip to China.
Jul 23 - 5:46 PM

Mike Miller has been recruiting Ray Allen to join him and LeBron James in Cleveland.

"With LeBron James, you are going to win 55 to 60 games regardless," Miller said. "Now it's about what you do in the playoffs. For us, even with the young talent that they have there, you’ve got to bring guys that have been there before, even if they are not giving you heavy minutes. Because those are the guys that understand the preparation, the adjustments, things like that can really bring those guys along. And then you build it from there." Allen is contemplating retirement, but the ageless veteran could still contribute to an NBA team with his clutch shot making and picture perfect jumper. Stay tuned.

Unrestricted free agent Ray Allen is talking with the Cavaliers and Rockets while continuing to contemplate retirement.

Allen is still undecided on whether he wants to return for another NBA season, or retire after 18 years in the NBA. He has reportedly been in talks with both the Rockets and Cavaliers, but is yet to speak with his former team. "We knew that he wanted to take some time and be patient to see where he is," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "We'll see what happens." Whether he chooses to play next season or retire, Allen will go down as the greatest three-point shooter in the history of the NBA.
Jul 16 - 12:02 PM

Unrestricted free agent Ray Allen is reportedly contemplating retirement.

Allen is in no rush to select his next team, as he's not sure whether he wants to play, or call it quits on his career. Allen is the NBA's all-time leader in 3-point makes with 2973, and over 19-years of professional play Allen has shot 40.0 percent from beyond the arc. Needless to say, if Mr. Allen chooses to retire, the NBA will be losing one of the best shooters to ever play the game.
Jul 14 - 9:37 AM

The Cavaliers are reportedly pursuing free agent Ray Allen.

This is a transparent move to lure LeBron James back to Cleveland, as Allen has said that he'd like to continue his career alongside LBJ. It's doubtful Allen will make any decisions before LeBron, but Cleveland has nothing to lose by expressing interest in Allen (and leaking it to the media). If the Cavs fail to land LeBron, they're expected to pursue Trevor Ariza and other free agents with their copious salary-cap space.
