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. Aug 3 - 11:14 AM

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.
Feb 20 - 4:46 PM

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.
Feb 12 - 9:29 AM

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.
Feb 10 - 3:46 PM

Ray Allen is going to make a decision about his playing future after All-Star weekend, sources told ESPN.

Allen has not decided whether or not he wants to continue playing, so in other words, nothing has really changed here. The fact of the matter is Allen has to be on a roster soon to be playoff-eligible, so he's facing a deadline to decide one way or the other. The Wizards, Cavs, Warriors, Spurs, Heat and Hawks have all expressed interest at some point.

The Hawks are reportedly interested in signing shooting guard Ray Allen.

The Hawks just lost Thabo Sefolosha (calf) for close to two months, so it's not surprising to see them look for reinforcements. Allen would give them another shooter to stretch the floor besides Kyle Korver, so their interest makes a lot of sense. Allen isn't supposed to make a decision until the All-Star break, so owners in deeper leagues can leave him on the wire for now.
Feb 6 - 9:41 AM

Ray Allen will reportedly decide if he will continue playing in the NBA after the All-Star break.

Cleveland is said to be the favorite to land Allen for obvious reasons, but several other teams have been linked to the sharpshooter as well. Allen would likely have a limited role off the bench wherever he lands at this point in his career, so owners outside of deeper leagues can ignore this news.
Feb 5 - 5:09 PM

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.
Jan 22 - 9:10 AM

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.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 09:22:00 AM

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.
