Cav Players Trying To Lure UConn Great Allen To Cleveland
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) – Mike Miller and James Jones came to Cleveland to help LeBron James win an NBA title. They hope Ray Allen joins them.
Miller and Jones were introduced Wednesday by the Cavaliers, who remain interested in signing Allen, the most prolific 3-point shooter in league history.
Jones, who won two NBA titles as James’ teammate in Miami, said he recently spent time with Allen in Connecticut.
Jones said he would love to play with Allen again, but doesn’t know if the 39-year-old will play another season.
Miller played with James on Tuesday at the superstar’s high school alma mater in Akron and reported the four-time league MVP “looks good” following a recent weight loss.
Miller said James is “always driven” but that he’s more committed than ever to bring a championship to Cleveland.
