There has been an immense amount of chatter where Ray Allen, one of the greatest three-pointer NBA shooters of all-time, would land for the 2016-17 season, and there are two teams that quite spark his intrigue.

Allen, aka Jesus Shuttlesworth, wants to resurrect his NBA career for this upcoming season, and has been talking to the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks, according to an interview with the Hartford Courant.

“I would love going back to those places if it worked out,” Allen said, “because both teams are good, too. It doesn’t necessarily have to be championship-or-bust for me to go back to the NBA.

Other teams that could land Allen are the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs.

The fit with the Celtics is ideal for both sides due to the leadership and mentorship he can provide to the likes of R.J. Hunter and others. The 41-year-old can bolster that shooting presence Brad Stevens and company has been searching for as well.

Allen will most likely make his decision sooner rather later so be on the lookout for the Celtics to make some moves to fulfill the roster spot and $1.5 million veteran minimum he would earn.
