Ray Allen confirms he has spoken with two teams about an NBA comeback

Ray Allen is one of the most accurate three-point shooters in NBA history. In a league where bombing from deep is becoming increasingly prevalent, even at 41-years-old, there may be room on a roster for a talent like Allen.

The 10-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion has not played since finishing up with the Miami Heat in 2014 where he sported averages of 9.6 points a game and went 37.5 percent from three point range.

However, nobody has sunk as many three-point bombs as Allen in the history of the NBA, and with the way the league has mutated in the wake of the Golden State Warriors' success, it's understandable he is considering a comeback.

Allen told the Courant he has spoken with two of his former teams, the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks. He has been linked to the Cavaliers and Warriors in the past, and the Courant mentions the Spurs and Clippers as possible destinations.

He also said that Spike Lee, the director of 'He Got Game' in which Allen starred back in 1998, has been trying to recruit him to play for the Knicks. He still lives in Miami most of the year.

“My decision is predicated on what is available,” Allen said. "I said that I was interested because I never retired for a reason. I've been watching, seeing what teams have been doing and I've been waiting to see if the opportunity presented itself where I think I could fit.

“I would love going back to those places if it worked out," Allen noted, "because both teams are good, too. It doesn't necessarily have to be championship-or-bust for me to go back to the NBA. I want to be in a situation where I thought I could help, play a little bit and help where they have good young talent.”

Allen might not be at the apex of his powers now, but he could definitely be a useful backcourt addition to a young lineup in the NBA.

Do you think Ray Allen should dust off his trainers and take to the court again?
