Ray Allen’s future in the NBA is still undecided, but if he does retire, he says he’d be “content” with it.
In an interview with the Hartford Courant, the NBA veteran says he’s not committed to returning for a 19th season in the NBA, though multiple teams are interested in him.
“My family is very important in making the decision,” Allen told the paper. “Right now, there is nothing that I need to do. If I ultimately decide this will be it for me, I’m content with that.”
It’s rumored that Allen is leaning toward joining former Miami Heat teammates LeBron James and Mike Miller with the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, he’s said he’s not rushing toward his decision… or even had that conversation with James yet.
“I’m not in any rush,” he said. “I’ve played 18 years, and the way I look at my career, I’m content with everything that I’ve done. I just want to take this summer and see how it goes.”
Allen turned 39 last month, and has been a key bench contributor for the four-time reigning Eastern Conference champion Heat. Last season, he averaged 9.6 points while shooting 37.5 percent from 3-point range.
