Ray Allen is leaning toward returning for 19th season and joining LeBron James with the Cavaliers.

Some might scoff at Ray Allen for following around Lebron James in an effort to win another title but to those people I say give me a break. As a free agent nearing the end of my career why wouldn't you want to go to the place that gives you the best chance to go out on top. Last year in Miami Allen averaged 9.6 points off the bench while connecting on 1.6 threes per game over 26.5 minutes.

Veteran free agent point guard Jameer Nelson has committed to signing with Dallas on Thursday.

Injuries have hampered Nelson over the past few seasons but when he is on the court he shows he still has the skills to facilitate the ball and knock down the three with regularity. Last season for the Magic Nelson started all 68 games that he played averaging 12.1 points, 7.0 assists and 2 threes per game.

Ray Allen said he plans on getting MRI's on his legs before making future decision.

The declining former star would like to go to a contender, but depending on the result of the MRI he may elect to retire. LeBron has reached out to him, attempting to bring him to Cleveland, but he may look to other contenders with a better shot at winning.

New Orleans, as expected, has released newly acquired forward Omri Casspi, who will find new team in free agency if he clears waivers.

Casspi was picked up as part of a salary dump in the Omer Asik trade with the Rockets. He was expected to be released, so this is hardly unexpected.

Josh Harrellson was waived by the Pistons on Tuesday.

Hard to imagine a 25-year-old as a journeyman but Harrellson has never stayed with the same team for more than a year. The Pistons had much better depth options to sort through, so he'll try and catch on with another team. This has D-League written all over it.

Peyton Siva was waived by the Pistons on Tuesday.

With D.J. Augustin joining the Pistons, Siva became expendable. He's free to join another team should someone be in the market looking for a back-up point guard.

Rookie forward Clint Capela just signed his rookie contract with the Rockets.

The 25th overall pick in last season's draft averaged 9.4 points and 7.4 rebounds for France Chalon last season. The Rockets were considering keeping Capela in Europe to save money with the hope of signing Chris Bosh, but elected to sign Capela instead. The rookie will make $991,000 next season and $1.03 million the following year with options for two more years.

Knicks announce they've waived swingman Shannon Brown.

For some reason the 2.2 points and 1.0 rebounds averaged over 29 games last season didn't interest the Knicks (shocking...) and they have decided to move on. Brown may be picked up by another team but he likely won't have a significant role.

Bulls have reportedly offered up 2014 lottery pick Doug McDermott as part of their trade package for Kevin Love. 

The Cavaliers appear to be int he front running to acquire Kevin Love, but the late push by the Bulls, offering Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic, may change the landscape a bit. Reportedly the new Bulls offer is more appealing to the Wolves than any other offers they have received, including the one from the Cavs, who offered Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a future first round pick in a trade.
