Veteran G Ray Allen has yet to make up his mind on whether to play a final NBA season or retire but he has indicated that he would be content with retiring.  Allen has spent the last two seasons playing for the Miami Heat.  

"My family is very important in making the decision," Allen said. "Right now, there is nothing that I need to do. If I ultimately decide this will be it for me, I'm content with that.....I'm not in any rush....I've played 18 years, and the way I look at my career, I'm content with everything that I've done. I just want to take this summer and see how it goes."

"To continue playing, really, the only argument is I can because I'm in great shape," Allen said. "But just because you can doesn't mean you have to. Many people over these last couple of weeks have lobbied for me to continue to play.
"My argument for not playing is, I have done a significant amount in my career and I appreciate everything that has come my way and as I've gotten older -- I'm 39 -- there are so many things in life I want to be able to do to affect change, like being around kids full time, which I enjoy. So at this point I just feel so good about where I am."
