Ray Allen will NOT return to the NBA this season

After much speculation, Ray Allen has decided not to return to the league for the remainder of the 2014-15 NBA season.

The pursuit of Ray Allen was an often newsworthy item over the course of the last 6+ months only for the resulting news to be "no news."

With that long list of suitors, Allen definitely had the opportunity to sign with a contender. Ultimately, the decision of who to play for became a non-decision with the announcement via his agent Jim Tanner that he'll continue to evaluate his free agency options in the off-season.
