As the days and weeks passedย following the All-Star break, the growing belief among NBA executives was that Ray Allen would indeed sit out the 2014-15 season. Allen made it official this afternoon. But he didn’t rule out a return in 2015-16, when Allen will be 40 years old.

Ten-time NBA All-Star Ray Allen will not play during the 2014-15 NBA season, announced his agent Jim Tanner, President of Tandem Sports + Entertainment. Allen will take the remainder of this season and the off-season to reassess for the 2015-16 NBA season.

 

โ€œOver the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me,โ€ Allen said. โ€œIโ€™ve ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season. Iโ€™m going to take the remainder of this season, as well as the upcoming off-season, to reassess my situation, spend time with my family and determine if I will play in the 2015-16 season.โ€

 

โ€œRay has received enormous interest from a number of NBA teams throughout this season,โ€ Tanner said. โ€œWe will communicate with interested teams as Ray makes a decision for the 2015-16 season.โ€
