Ray Allen will make a decision on his future during the All-Star Break according to a report by ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst. Per the report, Allen still hasn't made up his mind as to whether he wants to return to the court this season. He has been training and has stayed in shape as a means to keep his options open. Allen could meet with interested teams during All-Star Weekend with a decision coming soon after.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have long been thought to be the front runner for Allen but the Atlanta Hawks have also met with his representatives. The Hawks are leading the Eastern Conference and Allen would appear to be a good fit for their space the floor system.

Atlanta could be in the market for another wing option after losing Thabo Sefolosha for the 6-8 weeks with a calf injury. The Hawks currently have 15 players on the roster with guaranteed contracts so they would have to make a move first in order to clear a roster spot if Allen was interested in signing.
