Just about every contender in the NBA has reached out to Allen at some point in order to express interest, but the veteran shooting guard still hasn’t decided what he’s going to do.
Most people around the NBA believe he’ll play this year, but he hasn’t made that clear just yet. If does want to play this season, waiting to sign ensures that he’ll be joining a team with a realistic shot at contending and one that has a significant role for him.
Allen averaged 9.6 points per game last year on the Miami HEAT and hit perhaps the biggest shot of his career the year before, which helped Miami go on to win the championship over the San Antonio Spurs.
Allen is also highly coveted for his leadership, as he’s a strong veteran presence and knows what it takes to hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy.
The Warriors would be an interesting fit for Allen since he could be the third Splash Brother alongside Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. It remains to be seen what Allen will choose.
Morris had been drawing interest from several teams recently. He worked out for the New Orleans Pelicans, but they opted to sign Gal Mekel. Now, he’ll join the Nets on a non-guaranteed deal.
Morris has played for the L.A. Lakers, L.A. Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers and Memphis Grizzlies over the course of his three-year NBA career. He was one of the Portland Trail Blazers’ final cuts entering this season, so he didn’t make the team.
In 94 career NBA games, Morris has recorded averages of 3.7 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 12.4 minutes per game.
Delonte West had been playing in China, but was ultimately replaced by Bernard James once he got injured. Now, he’s looking to sign with a U.S. team and resume his NBA career.
West hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season, when he suited up for the Dallas Mavericks. That year, he played 44 games for the Mavs, averaging 9.6 points, 3.2 assists and 1.3 steals in 24.1 minutes per game.
He was waived during that season after being suspended twice in one month for conduct detrimental to the team. The organization reportedly felt he was a bad influence to have around some of the team’s younger players.
Over the course of his eight-year NBA career, West averaged 9.7 points, 3.6 assists and 1.1 steals. He was a starter with the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.
West’s bad reputation due to the legal trouble and off-court issues he had earlier in his career could make his NBA comeback difficult.
