Ray Allen, who is still deciding whether to play next season, and his wife are unhappy how local authorities and media reports have characterized what happened at his Coral Gable home very, very late Wednesday night/Thursday morning, when seven 18- and 19-year olds walked into their home. Coral Gables police spokeswoman Kelly Denham said police did not charge the teenagers with burglary because there was no forced entry, no intent and nothing taken. Miami Herald

Early Thursday at a party in Coral Gables next door to Ray Allen’s house, seven 18- and 19-year-olds decided they wanted to see how a former Miami Heat player lived. It looked like no one was home about 2 a.m., so they walked in through an unlocked back door. Allen wasn’t home, but his wife, Shannon Walker Allen, and their kids were sleeping upstairs, according to Coral Gables police spokeswoman Kelly Denham. When the intruders began walking around and making noise, Shannon Allen woke up and screamed, “What are you doing in my home?” The intruders bolted, and Shannon Allen called police. Officers determined that nothing had been removed from the home on Tahiti Beach Island Road. Miami Herald

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 USA TODAY Sports. "Any reports otherwise are false." USA Today Sports

Sources say the Cavs, meanwhile, are already touting Love's arrival as a lure in hopes of closing free-agent deals with Shawn Marion and Ray Allen. ESPN.com

Mike Miller and James Jones came to Cleveland to help LeBron James win an NBA title. They hope Ray Allen joins them. Miller and Jones were introduced Wednesday by the Cavaliers, who remain interested in signing Allen, the most prolific 3-point shooter in league history. Jones, who won two NBA titles as James' teammate in Miami, said he recently spent time with Allen in Connecticut. Jones said he would love to play with Allen again, but doesn't know if the 39-year-old will play another season. USA Today Sports

Instead, Allen is weighing family concerns and a major question of whether he wants to retire in prime physical shape, or whether he wants to chase his third NBA title. That will most likely mean leaving Miami, his city of the last two years. Allen said he has not talked with Heat general manager Pat Riley, or any other member of the Heat organization, about returning. Boston Herald

Included on Allen's call list is his former Celtics coach, Doc Rivers, now on behalf of the Clippers. "A lot have called. Doc called earlier in the summer," he said. "A lot of teams want to be able to get me at the veteran’s minimum. I still have an ego, too. I still have a service to provide, and teams still have to pay me what I feel my presence is worth. I have to take that into consideration, if it’s worth putting my body through what it will take over 82 games." Boston Herald

"It will require a perfect storm scenario for me," said Allen. "I’m in great shape, and I’ll continue to be in great shape, but I don’t want to go to a situation where I don’t understand the rhythm of how a coach coaches. He has to be a great coach, a veteran coach." Boston Herald

Ray Allen could play one more year in the NBA. He is wanted, and he knows it. Or he could retire with no regrets, all business finished. All the years of solid play and diligent work at conditioning have put him, at 39, in this rare position — to script his own ending, and take his time doing it. "I'm not in any rush [to make a decision]," Allen said during a break in the Citi Ray Allen Basketball ProCamp at East Granby High on Saturday morning. "I've played 18 years, and the way I look at my career, I'm content with everything that I've done. I just want to take this summer and see how it goes." Hartford Courant
