It looks like Ray Allen is back or he wants to be back. Sources have revealed that Allen is ending his two-year retirement and has reached out to multiple teams. Allen is 40 years old and even with age, he is said to be one of the most conditioned basketball players. He too is virtually a future Hall of Famer as he is known for being one of the greatest three-point shooters of all time.
Allen, in a report by ESPN, through his representatives has reached out to several teams including the defending champs, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the runner-up, Golden State Warriors. He is also reportedly considering to join two other teams, the Los Angeles Clippers and the San Antonio Spurs.

The Warriors though are quite unsure whether they?ll pick Allen up. They already have Kevin Durant and having another aging yet able superstar might leave them little in their coffers. Allen too, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN, is not absolutely sure if he wants to return but he is definitely intrigued with the possibility of vying for another championship ring.
The rush that one gets playing against great players, the sheer pressure and magnitude of a championship game might be the thing that is pulling him back to the court. This and some contending teams that were pursuing him for the past seasons.
Ray Allen has averaged 18.9 points over his entire career as a 10-time All-Star player. He averages 40 percent from beyond the arc in the whole of his NBA tenure and has won two championships. One was in 2008 with the Boston Celtics and the other was with the Miami Heat back in 2013.
Do you think Ray Allen will make a splash when he returns to one of those teams mentioned above? Could he play for another championship ring or is it time to call his illustrious career it? Leave your comments below.
