    Would make absolutely no sense for him to sign with Roxs

    Cavs only have the vet min. to offer so we can put that all to rest. :)

    There is nothing to leverage here for Allen. The Cavs can't give him more than the vets minimum.

    Cavs cannot up their offer as far as I can tell. Used all their cap room and exceptions already.

    Bingo. He's probably choosing between more somewhere other than Cleveland, playing with Lebron or retiring.

    I'm not really sure he makes a ton of sense for the Rockets anyway, but I'd surely sign him and let it sort itself out if I could.

    Would be a logjam at the guard spot:

    Harden
    Bev
    Allen
    Nick Johnson
    Cannan
    Troy Daniels

    I guess they'd send Nick to the DLeague to start.

    In that case, he's just stroking the ego.

    I was going to post this. People are just being so negative around here now that it's embarrassing. We have the best SG and the best C in the league, and people are acting like they're ready to commit mass suicide over an overpaid glue guy.

    Cleveland will likely only offer the vet minimum, so how exactly is Ray Allen using the Rockets for leverage?

    I wouldn't be mad about it however, I don't see it happening.

    & since nobody else has said it, I will.

    He's going to the Cavs or he's retiring

    I think it is a long shot but Allen may sign with the Rockets if enough money is offered. The Rockets may be willing to offer a little bit more than usual because it wont hurt their flexibility long term.

    Also, Allen could be a bone thrown McHale's way, he said it light hearted, but he still said the Rockets needed more veterans.

    Can you imagine....... Ariza, Allen, Canaan, Harden, Beverley and Daniels all on the Rockets?... I wonder what the Rockets offense emphasis would be?

    Bev/Canaan/Nick Johnson/Troy Daniels
    Harden/allen/Troy Daniels
    Ariza/Punchyournipples/Allen

    Lots of 3s but not enough minutes to develop the young players you want to develop and keep your vets happy. People going to be unhappy when young guns stuck with RGV.

    Wonder if you could get away with Harden/Allen/Ariza together on the floor for any significant minutes.

    His heart is telling Cleveland (why he is so loyal to Lebron, idk), his mind is telling him houston (a lot more money I'm assuming), his family is probably telling him retire (unless he has a gold digger wife in which case he chooses Houston).
