Ray Allen says his last NBA offer came from Bucks (Cavs made a pitch, too)

Ray Allen reveals that his last NBA offer came from the Milwaukee Bucks, which would have been a full circle move for the retired NBA player. He also reveals he did have a Cavs opportunity and talks about Paul Pierce.

Ray Allen had the chance to complete the circle.

One of the best pure shooters the game has ever seen, he walked away from the NBA when LeBron James left Miami to go to Cleveland. Allen stayed in Miami to live and golf, but he took a step back from the NBA.

That said, his phone kept ringing. He told Dan Patrick on Friday that, yes, the Cavaliers did call. He also said his last call came from the Milwaukee Bucks — the team where Allen started his NBA career. He could have completed, the circle, but decided against it.

This week, Allen made his retirement official. Next stop, the Hall of Fame.
