Agency that reps Ray Allen says reports he intends to play for Cavaliers are ‘unfounded,’ no decision has been made

Once LeBron James settled in Cleveland with the Cavaliers, he was able to get a couple of his former veteran Heat teammates to join him.

But despite reports to the contrary, there’s one more still out there who remains undecided.

Mike Miller and James Jones both committed to the Cavaliers, and while Ray Allen would be one more excellent addition, his future apparently remains uncertain as to whether or not he’ll continue to play at all next season.

That’s the agency that represents Allen, tweeting their denial of reports that Allen may be leaning toward signing in Cleveland for the upcoming season.

Allen has said that the city where the franchise is located doesn’t matter all that much, so leaving Miami for Cleveland wouldn’t be too difficult — especially with LeBron there to ease that transition.

But no decision has yet been made, so despite the reports that are out there and the landing spot that would make plenty of sense, we’ll just have to wait for something official from Allen and his camp before penciling him in alongside LeBron as part of the Cavaliers revamped roster.

    Lies. Everyone knows he’s going to Cleveland, book it. I’ll even go a step further and put him on in my 2k game.

      None of these moves I’ve seen so far is going to help keep LeBron and the Cavs from getting destroyed by the top Western teams in the finals. And no one out West is the slightest bit afraid of Kevin Love. Notice that the Warriors are the only West team showing any interest, and even they realize he’s not worth Klay Thompson in trade?

        Oh for sure, next Larry is staying in the West. East is just fighting to be first place losers.

        texas, I agreed with the first half of your first sentence but after that you sounded idiotic as s**t.

    Just BS agent talk. I’m giving 10 to 1 odds Ray Allen is in a Cavs uniform next season. Ray Allen has the competitive fire of a winner and playing with Lebron gives him his best shot. No way Ray walks away now.

    Of course Ray is going to try and ride someone else’s wave again

    There will be a spot for him if the Cavs trade Wiggins and Bennett. If they don’t get Love he’ll probably retire.

    of course they deny it. because they want to be the one to make the announcement.

    I would suggest OKC as a landing spot for Ray, but they’re currently only $1.8 million below the salary cap and there’s no way in heck they’ll pay the luxury tax.

      Hmmm, not bad…back to Seat….errrr…

    He’d follow Lebron to the bathroom.
