Fans of the Milwaukee Bucks would love to bring Ray Allen back, but is it even possible for a player that old to be productive?
Bringing Ray Allen back to Milwaukee would be a great feel-good story for the Milwaukee Bucks. He was one of the best Bucks ever back in the early 2000s, and now he could assume a leadership role and guide the young Bucks.
He could probably add a shooting touch as well, helping the Bucks both with chemistry and floor spacing. Or that’s the general consensus, at least.
What if he couldn’t actually help out on the floor these days? Allen was effective in his last season with the Miami Heat, but that was two full years ago now.
