Add The Bulls To The List Of Teams Looking To Hire Three-Point Mercenary Ray Allen
September 8 / Joe Polito / SportsGrid
We don't even know if Ray Allen will play another NBA game, but that hasn't stopped several contenders from throwing their hats in the ring. The latest, according to ESPN, is the already deeper Chicago Bulls.
The Chicago Bulls have touched base with the representatives of veteran shooting guard Ray Allen, a league source confirmed Monday.
So the Cavs, Spurs, Wizards, Clippers and now the Bulls all want this 39-year-old sniper to join their quest for a trophy. Of all these interested teams, Chicago might be the one that needs Allen's expertise the most. As it stands, Mike Dunleavy, Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic are the Bulls' best shooters. Derrick Rose could definitely use a moving safety valve during drives to the rim.
Plus, he's immortal.
Everyone's reaching out to Allen's representatives, so I wonder what he's up to during this contemplation period. He's a big golfer, so I imagine he's chipping and putting in some exotic location with the same machine precision he does his line-drive jumpers. But that's lame, so let's just assume he's teaching himself how to levitate by achieving a negative body fat percentage through cross-paleo-fit calisthenics of eternal youth.
