Ray Allen still might return for a 19th season in the NBA. He also might retire. But he has not officially made a decision yet, according to agent Jim Tanner.
Allen has said publicly that he plans to wait until at least September to decide if he'll return for the 2014-15 season, and Tanner reiterated that stance Saturday evening.
"As Ray has previously stated, he is taking this time to make a decision whether or not he will play next season," Tanner said in a statement obtained by NBA SPORT UPDATES. "Any reports otherwise are false."
Earlier Saturday, ESPN.com reported that Allen has privately told those close to him that he will put off retirement and play this coming season.
Allen turned 39 on July 20, but the NBA's all-time leader in three-pointers could be a coveted free-agent addition to any title contender.
