Coach Doc Rivers said Ray Allen "may play" in the NBA again.
"I won’t talk about what we talked about but I think if Ray was in the right spot, he may play," Rivers said. The Allen comeback story has been going on for over a year, but there still isn't anything concrete. His fitness and incredible work ethic will make any team needing some shooting give him a look.

Celtics' owner Steve Pagliuca said that he hasn't spoken with Ray Allen in the last couple of months.

Allen is said to be pondering an NBA comeback after two years removed from the game, but it's looking like we can cross Boston off his list of suitors. The Bucks and Knicks could still be an option for the 41-year-old veteran, but he won't earn enough playing time with either of those clubs to warrant a draft pick in any format.

Bucks president Peter Feigin said that the team is still in discussions with Ray Allen.

Allen has also been linked to the Knicks and Celtics, but a deal isn't imminent just yet. Rashad Vaughn has a lot of work to do, so signing Allen wouldn't be a bad idea for a Bucks team that is hoping to get back into the playoffs.

Spike Lee has been recruiting Ray Allen to come and play for the Knicks.

The 41-year-old sharpshooter is seriously considering a comeback and he's already been linked to the Celtics and Bucks as well. The Knicks do have a roster spot open, but it's not clear if they have interest in Allen. If he does join the Knicks, he would likely be the primary backup SG behind Courtney Lee.

Ray Allen did not dismiss the idea of a potential NBA return for the 2016-17 season.

"My decision is predicated on what is available," Allen, now 41 said on Saturday. "I said that I was interested because I never retired for a reason. I've been watching, seeing what teams have been doing and I've been waiting to see if the opportunity presented itself where I think I could fit." Mr. Shuttlesworth has reportedly spoken with the Celtics and Bucks, though it's unclear when those conversations took place. "I would love going back to those places if it worked out," he added, "because both teams are good, too. It doesn't necessarily have to be championship-or-bust for me to go back to the NBA. I want to be in a situation where I thought I could help, play a little bit and help where they have good young talent." Allen added that if nothing pans out by the start of the season, "then basically I'll retire."

Ray Allen is considering making an NBA comeback, sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

According to Broussard, Allen's reps reached out to the Golden State Warriors—because of course—to gauge their interest in adding the sharpshooter to the roster, but the franchise is reportedly uncertain about a potential pursuit. Allen, who turns 41 later this month, won't commit to making a return, but he is "intrigued by the possibility of playing for another championship." Sources told Broussard that In addition to the Warriors, Allen would consider the Cavs, Spurs and Clippers.

Ray Allen has passed on multiple offers to return to the Heat, sources told the Miami Herald.

The Heat has reached out "multiple times through multiple channels to Allen," and in addition to having a "standing offer" to return since the 2014 offseason, Miami "made additional overtures as recently as this summer." Despite keeping himself in excellent shape, it's hard to see the 40-year-old returning to the NBA after sitting out the last year and a half.

Clippers head coach and president of basketball operations Doc Rivers recently played golf with Ray Allen, but said he didn't try to talk Allen into a comeback.

While it's possible Doc broached the subject, this could also be a case of a coach enjoying a round of golf with a former player. We'll keep an eye on any news surrounding Allen as he hasn't officially retired, but he won't hold any fantasy value even he decides to return to the NBA.

Ray Allen said he won't officially retire from the NBA.

"Because if something came to the table, contractually and situational-ly, I want to be able to take a strong look at it. I don’t want to be that guy that says he’s retiring and then is coming back," Allen said. He then added "I didn't miss it" when talking about time spent with his family, so we wouldn't anticipate a Jesus Shuttlesworth relaunch anytime soon.

The Blazers tried to sign Ray Allen following the Wes Matthews (Achilles) injury.

In the Nick Young line of thinking, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take. The Blazers are really going to be leaning on Arron Afflalo and hope he can extend his mid-range game to beyond the arc. Afflalo and Matthews have a similar skill set on offense, but Afflalo has struggled this season. For what it's worth, Afflalo was terrific around the rim in his previous four seasons at 65 percent, but he's dropped to 51 percent this season. His new teammates should help him. As for Allen, he is not going to play this year.

Ray Allen will not play in the 2014-15 season.

"Over the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me," Allen said. "I’ve ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season. I’m going to take the remainder of this season, as well as the upcoming off-season, to reassess my situation, spend time with my family and determine if I will play in the 2015-16 season." Allen is a machine, so we certainly shouldn't rule out the possibility of him playing next year.

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, the Cavs are officially out of the running for Ray Allen.

"Ray Allen is not going to sign with the Cavs," said Windhort. "I don't think he's going to play. If he decides he wants to, it won't be with the Cavs." Wherever Allen decides to play this season, or if he decides to play this season, should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues, as he's not going to be anything more than an end-of-the-bench kind of guy on a contending roster. The Hawks, Wizards, Warriors, and Spurs remain in the conversation for Allen’s services.

There's a growing belief among NBA executives that Ray Allen will not play in the NBA this season.

Allen reportedly hasn't delivered a word to his agent that he wants to play. He's kept in shape because he's a machine, but it makes sense that he might not play considering it's Feb. 20. The Cavs are considered the frontrunner, but it becomes more unlikely as each day goes passes.

Ray Allen has been in contact with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but has he still has not made a decision about where to play this season.

The Cavs and Hawks have both been interested in bringing Allen on board, but we likely won't know Allen's decision until after the All-Star Break. There's also a chance that Allen decides that he's already played his last NBA game, so fantasy owners can feel to leave him on the wire no matter what he decides.

The Hawks are looking to add either Ray Allen or Gary Neal following Tuesday's trade sending Adreian Payne to the Timberwolves for a future first-round pick.

Allen is expected to make his decision as to whether he'll sign on with a contender or remain retired following the All-Star break, although he wouldn't have much value on any team he chooses to sign with. If Allen decides to go with another team, or simply retire, the Hawks will look to reunite Gary Neal with head coach Mike Budenholzer, although he too would have very limited value as a bench player for Atlanta.
