It emerged last week that the Golden State Warriors were looking into signing veteran star, and current free agent, Ray Allen.
Despite his veteran status and lack of recent playing time since leaving the Miami Heat at the end of last season, Allen is still regarding as someone who could offer invaluable experience (and clutch shooting).
As such other teams quickly emerged as competitors to the Warriors for Allen's signature with everyone from the San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers to the Chicago Bulls linked to the perennial All-Star.
Now though there are two more names to be added to the ever extending list, one of which may just have the edge due to the man who sits in their head coach position.
Dan Wioke of the Orange County Register reports that the Los Angeles Clippers, coached by Doc Rivers who mentored Allen with the Celtics, are keeping a close eye on the situation with Rivers deemed to be "interested."
- Golden State Warriors in for Ray Allen
- Ray Allen not rushing back to NBA despite potential LeBron reunion
- Ray Allen deciding whether to make one more title chase
A reunion with Rivers would certainly suit Allen who is said to be willing to return to the NBA if the right situation arose.
Another team reportedly interested as of today is the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies have started the 2014-15 season off in fine form and could certainly use the distance shooting Allen offers.
At this stage it is unclear who Ray Allen favors, should he favor any option at all. All that is clear is that the former Boston Celtics and Miami Heat star is not lacking in options should he seek a return to the hardwood.
What do you think NBA fans? Would you take Allen on your team? Or do you think he is too old? Let us know in the comments section below...
