When I was first drafted by Boston in 2004, I thought I was a scorer after being named the Big 12 Conference Player of the Year. But being around some maxed-out players, and after my ACL injury in 2007, I had to find my niche in the league. Paul Pierce helped me out, saying, "If you can guard me in practice every day, you can guard just about anybody." He gave me confidence. A lot of my influence comes from him; he's the best at getting ready to play a game. I also looked at the work ethic of Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. Bleacher Report

Allen is making it known that he wants to return to the NBA, and his list of suitors is growing. The Wizards and Cavaliers are the most notable teams interested, but watch out for the Bulls, who are in need of another long-range shooter with Mike Dunleavy Jr. and Doug McDermott battling injuries.
