Ray Allen is allegedly leaning towards staving off retirement for another season to join his friend LeBron James in Cleveland with the Cavaliers. 

For what would be his 19th season in the NBA, the shooting guard will look to rejoin forces with the King in his hometown as the Cavaliers look to build a championship contender centred around the incredible talents of LeBron James.

Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reported the news that the NBA's all time leading three point marksmen was looking to avoid retirement for a further year and now at the age of 39, was still looking to win another NBA title.

Allen is currently touring China while he weighs up his options and decides how to progress further in his long basketball career, the shooting guard had explained that he wants to return for MRI scans on both knees before making another final decisions over his health.

The future hall of famer is still wanted by his current organisation the Miami Heat but with the void left by LeBron's exit, Allen may not believe that the team contain a roster deep enough to challenge for the NBA's ultimate prize.

Cleveland's interest in the sharpshooter is surely to be noted, with an already strong relationship with James, Allen would continue his role of providing scoring off the bench if he were to make the switch to the Cavaliers.

His two seasons in Miami alongside James and the rest of the former big three produced positive, tangible results. Allen continued to prove he is one of the best shooters in the league and notched a 40%FG from three point range at his time with the Heat.

Although any move that the 39-year old will make is currently on hold before he finds out the state of his body, meanwhile the Cavaliers have another primary focus that includes the trade proposition for Kevin Love.

Keep an eye out for news involving Allen's decision to forego retirement for another year, it could result in 'Jesus Shuttlesworth' joining the 'King' in Cleveland for another shot at the title.
