Ray Allen Shooting a Three Pointer

Report: Cavs Still in Pursuit of Sharpshooter Ray Allen


It seems like the Cleveland Cavaliers are still looking to add some quality three-point shooters to their roster to compliment an offense oriented around LeBron James. Although former Miami Heat veteran Ray Allen has not yet decided on whether or not he would like to suit up for another year of NBA basketball, teams such as the Washington Wizards, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, and your very own Cleveland Cavaliers are all very well still in pursuit of the greatest three-pointer shooter of all time.

“Until he signs, that’s going to be a target for everybody,” Cavs general manager David Griffin told The Morning Journal & The News-Herald. “Ray is someone who fits us as a shooter. His championship pedigree fits us at a really high level. With James (Jones), Mike (Miller) and LeBron here, I think he’d feel comfortable with our group.”

“At the same time, it’s possible he’s not sure he wants to keep playing. He’s in no hurry to make a decision. We’ll play that out as far as we can.”

With training camps quickly approaching, the Cavs are hoping that Allen makes a decision sooner or later so they can decide on their final roster spots. Allen’s most recent campaign with the Heat saw him average 9.6 points on 44.2% shooting while adding 1.6 bombs off the bench. But more importantly, Allen brought with him playoff experience, veteran leadership, and the intangible clutch-shooting ability that saw him single-handedly save the Heat’s season in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals.
