With Jordan Crawford headed to China, the most marketable free agent remaining is Ray Allen, who is still trying to determine whether he wants to play this season. Several teams are interested, including Cleveland, Washington, Chicago, and the Los Angeles Clippers. One free agent to watch is former Fenerbahce Ulker guard Bo McCalebb, who helped Fenerbahce beat the Celtics in an exhibition game in 2012 in Istanbul. McCalebb had originally chosen to stay overseas because of a lucrative contract but has decided to give the NBA a shot. He could be a quality backup point guard . Boston Globe

The Cavaliers haven’t given up on their quest of signing veteran shooting guard Ray Allen. “Until he signs, that’s going to be a target for everybody,” Griffin said. “Ray is someone who fits us as a shooter. His championship pedigree fits us at a really high level. With James, Mike and LeBron here, I think he’d feel comfortable with our group. At the same time, it’s possible he’s not sure he wants to keep playing. He’s in no hurry to make a decision. We’ll play that out as far as we can.” Morning Journal

Ray Allen has yet to decide whether he will play another year, but the Cavs are ready if he does. "I think in his case when he decides this is something he's passionate about we are going to be more than willing to let him know how passionate we are about him. I don't think we would ever give up on it," Griffin said. "Until he signs that is going to be a target for everybody. Ray is somebody that fits us as a shooter. His championship pedigree fits us at a really high level." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Summer is over and NBA training camps will open around the country over the next week, but Ray Allen is still a free agent and he has several teams waiting on a decision regarding his basketball future. Among the teams interested in the free agent are the Washington Wizards, who have “periodically” checked in on Allen just as several other teams have since reaching out to the sharpshooter at the beginning of free agency in July, according to a person familiar with the situation. But Allen still hasn’t decided whether he will play another season or retire, and if he chooses to suit up again, the Wizards would have plenty of competition to land the shooting guard.

The Wizards have reached out to Ray Allen -- again -- in hopes of convincing the 39-year-old, if he decides to play rather than retire, to come to D.C., CSNwashington.com confirmed via multiple persons with knowledge of the situation Friday. While making another contact, after doing so early in the free agent process that opened July 1, doesn't improve their chances of landing Allen it does impact the big picture for Washington.
