Report: Ray Allen Considering NBA Return, Could Suit Up For These 4 Teams

Yesterday, news broke that the Golden State Warriors were interested in luring Ray Allen out of retirement. The Dubs have reportedly been trying to entice the sharpshooting Allen to make a comeback since 2014, and if they are able to seal the deal, he'd be another addition to their already bountiful off-season free agent haul.

However, if Allen does return to the court, Golden State appears to have some competition for his services. According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, Allen is at least mulling it over, and would consider four teams, including Golden State, as potential landing spots.

Of the other three franchises, Allen's most natural ties are to Cleveland, being that he played with LeBron James in Miami and helped him win a championship there in 2013, and the Clippers, because Doc Rivers won a title coaching Allen in Boston. The Spurs make total sense too, well, because they are the Spurs.

It's unclear how much Allen, who turns 41 this month, has left in the tank. But the man always kept himself in phenomenal shape, and it's doubtful his tree-point marksmanship has disappeared (he shot 37.5 percent in 2013-14 as a 38-year-old in his final NBA season). He could probably still serve as a bench asset to a contending team.
