NBA legend Ray Allen has left the door open for a return next season.
Allen, who turns 40 in July, is the league's all-time leading three-point scorer, but he hasn't played since he left the Miami Heat last year, and he confirmed that he will play no part this season.
He said in a statement: "Over the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me. I've ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season."
However, his agent, Jim Tanner, added: "Ray has received enormous interest from a number of NBA teams throughout this season. We will communicate with interested teams as Ray makes a decision for the 2015-16 season."
Allen is a 10-time NBA All-Star.
