Ray Allen is still sitting on the sidelines.
Arguably the greatest three point shooter the game has ever seen, he could still help the right team in a limited role, and the conventional wisdom around the league he will come back after the first of the year, mostly likely to play again with LeBron James. Just now in Cleveland’s wine and gold.
But the Warriors want in. Because you can never have enough three-point shooting. Warriors GM Bob Meyers confirmed Golden State’s interest, reports 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.”
Allen, a free agent, likely would have returned to Miami had LeBron come back, that’s where Allen lives with his family and he likes the lifestyle in South Beach. But he could be tempted back for half a season with a team that could use him at the two off the bench.
As Meyers said, those minutes are limited in Golden State, in large part because they want Klay Thompson on the court. In Cleveland, Shawn Marion starts at the two and Dion Waiters comes off the bench, you could find room for Allen in there.
There will be other teams interested as well.
It’s something to watch after the calendar turns.
