Ray Allen Could Decide Not To Play

Feb 20, 2015 4:52 PM

There is a growing belief around the NBA that Ray Allen will not play this season.

Allen still hasn't delivered word through his agent Jim Tanner that he wants to play. Allen would also have to begin the process of choosing a team.

Allen has been working out, but not at a level where he would immediately be able to return to NBA playing shape.

As one general manager said Friday, "It's getting late in the game for this to happen."

Most contenders had an interest in Allen, but several lost the eagerness to check in on his status.

Lakers Remain Hopeful Of Signing Goran Dragic Despite Trade To Heat

Feb 20, 2015 1:01 PM

While Goran Dragic was traded to the Miami Heat at the deadline, a person familiar with his thinking said he “loves the opportunity” to join the Los Angeles Lakers and sees them as a “perfect fit” when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The Heat can offer Dragic a five-year deal, while the Lakers and other teams would only be able to offer him a four-year deal.

The Lakers still have a reasonable chance of keeping their own pick this June and they'll also have the Houston Rockets' selection.
