Warriors have reached out to Ray Allen
We’re still waiting to find out if Ray Allen, the best three-point shooter of all time, which lace up the shoes and warm up the sniper for another go-round in the NBA. Allen chose not to sign with a team as a free agent before the season and said he’ll wait it out to decide between joining one of these teams or retiring.
Well the Golden State Warriors, who are 19-2 as first and hottest in the league right now, are now on the list of Allen’s suitors. Warriors GM Bob Meyers confirmed that the team reached out to Allen recently, via CSNBayArea.com:
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. “We don’t have enough minutes as it is so it’s just a question of chemistry.”
It’s been uncertain what Ray Allen plans to do from the start, because at first he seemed perfectly clear on joining up with LeBron James once more in Cleveland. But now he has plenty of other options. The San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, and Chicago Bulls have inquired about Allen, and now the Warriors are on his menu.
The way Golden State is playing right now in that wide open, free-flowing offense has to appeal to Ray Allen. I don’t see how it couldn’t. Sure the minutes might be more scarce at his position than say in Cleveland, but I’m also pretty sure he’s not seeking out that high of a usage rate. Not only would he fit right in with what Golden State is doing, he’d also make them that much more legitimate.
