The Golden State Warriors are looking to add every player they can for as little as possible. That includes sharpshooter Ray Allen, who has been out of the league for two years now, but has stayed in shape and ready to go.
According to Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com, Allen’s representatives have reached out to the Warriors, but have also reached out to the Cavs, Spurs, and Clippers.
The representatives of the future Hall-of-Fame sharpshooter Ray Allen have reached out to the Cavaliers to inform the champs that their client is anticipating a return to basketball after a two-year break, league sources informed cleveland.com.
The interest is mutual, a league source said.
Haynes also notes that although LeBron James and Allen are very close, he hasn’t started recruiting him yet.
LeBron James and Ray Allen are extremely close, but as of now I'm told the four-time MVP has not been recruiting his former teammate.

Allen is 40 years old, and at this point in his career, won’t be doing much besides knocking down three-pointers. Allen has career averages of 18.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.1 steals while knocking down 2.3 three-pointers per game. The 40% career three-point shooter is past his time for those stats, but has stayed in shape over the last two years while also not officially retiring.
Stay tuned for the latest on Cavs free agency.
