Bucks coach Jason Kidd said the team had sincere interest in bringing veteran Ray Allen back to the team during the past summer, but the former Bucks player was not inclined to return. Allen, an unrestricted free agent, still has not signed with any NBA team and has not said if he plans to retire. He played with the Miami Heat the past two years and helped it win the 2013 NBA championship. He also won a league title with the Boston Celtics in 2008. "We did contact Ray," Kidd said. "He's weighing his options to see where he wants to go. But we did have interest." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

He adhered too a strict daily workout program, one that clearly showed his dedication and commitment to becoming a better basketball player. “I would wake up at 7 a.m., get breakfast and then lift weights,’’ said the, yes, still affable Henson. “I did that just because I could to go sleep earlier at night. Sleep actually helps you put on weight. I would go to bed usually around 9, 10 o’clock. That’s unusual, but at the same time, I had a routine. I wanted to put on 15 pounds and I did, so it worked.’’ Henson played his first two seasons with the Bucks at around 216 pounds -- anorexic by NBA big man standards. He repeatedly got thrown around under the basket like a rag doll by opponents who often outweighed by by at least 50 pounds. Racine Journal-Times

Cavaliers forward LeBron James will not play in Tuesday night's preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks at The Q. Head coach David Blatt said this decision was part of the team's management process during the preseason. He stressed there isn't anything more to James sitting out. Shawn Marion will start in place of James tonight. "No physical problems at all. He's fine," Blatt said. "We're just trying to manage the preseason and the best possible way to get him ready."

Coincidentally, I talked with a person close to him Friday who told me nothing has changed. The Wizards have contacted Allen's representatives at Tandem Sports and Entertainment several times, both reported here. The prospect of being a starter again with Beal's absence isn't likely to make Washington any more enticing for Allen. He'll soon be 40. Six teams have actually contacted his reps since he became an unrestricted free agent -- the Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Oklahoma City Thunder and .... the Milwaukee Bucks. Yes, the latter is not a mistake. CSNWashington.com
