Cleveland’s roster size now stands at 14, one under the league allowable maximum. Rumors are swirling that the Cavs are making room to add one more player to the roster, which quite possibly could be shooting guard and best three-point shooter of all-time in Ray Allen. If the Cavaliers do indeed decide to bring Allen on board, that would be three former players on the Miami Heat’s championship roster (Mike Miller, James Jones) brought on to help LeBron James in his championship quest for Cleveland.
Just recently however, it was reported that Allen is still undecided on whether he would like to come back to play for one more season or not because of how much he is enjoying his time off.
“I’ve just been home, taking my kids to school,” said Allen, who has been contemplating whether to retire after 18 seasons in the NBA. “I’m working out, taking care of my body. I’m in great shape. I’ll just watch how the season progresses, and if I do feel the desire to continue to play, then I’ll decide what situation is viable for me…”
UPDATE: Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Cavaliers will sign free agent point guard Will Cherry, who was released by the Toronto Raptors before the start of the regular season.
