Golden State Warriors announced today that they are interested in acquiring legendary baller Ray Allen before the end of the season.
The two-time NBA champion played significant roles in the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat teams that won the NBA title in 2008 and 2013 respectively.
Since the end of last season, Allen has remained coy on whether or not he wants to make an NBA comeback. Cleveland Cavaliers have been one team that has reportedly shown interest in Allen, but now the Warriors have officially joined the party, with Golden State GM Bob Myers revealing all in an honest and frank interview on Thursday afternoon.
"Warriors GM Bob Myers told 95.7 FM The Game on Thursday afternoon that the club has in fact reached out to Allen's representatives but said, "it's uncertain as to what Ray wants to do."
"Here's the problem," Myers explained, according to CSNBayArea. "We don't have enough minutes as it is so it's just a question of chemistry."

It remains to be seen whether or not Ray Allen in fact signs for the Warriors, but one thing's for sure, any decision from Allen is not likely to be made until next year.
NBA insider Ryen Russillo revealed this week that Ray Allen won't make his decision until February.
Allen's role at the Warriors or any another franchise would be limited. But the diminutive baller has proved that he has the ability to shine in such a role in the past. Known as one of the best ever NBA three-point shooters, Allen could definitely help improve a Warriors team that is already dominating the NBA so far this season. Most importantly, Allen could be key to keeping the Warriors competitive during the post-season, with the shooting guard's experience likely to come in handy.
