Ray Allen had decided not to sign with any team and will sit out the entire 2015 NBA season according to a release by his agent.

The Atlanta Hawks were among several teams that were rumored to be interested in adding the veteran guard for the stretch run. There had been growing doubt that Allen was leaning towards not returning this season and never really got involved in serious negotiations with any team.

The Hawks will reportedly fill their open roster spot by giving Jarell Eddie a call-up from the D-League. Eddie spent training camp with the Hawks and has spent the remainder of the season playing for the Austin Spurs.
