Ray Allen Rumors: Clippers Schedule Visit For Free Agent Shooting Guard

The Los Angeles Clippers are angling in on Jamal Crawford, but that doesn't mean they're close to being done with trying to land shooting guards. Crawford is a pretty good starting talent, but L.A. could still utilize more two-guard depth to help stretch the floor with outside shooters and prevent teams from zeroing in on Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.

Ray Allen could be the main target for the Clippers. Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times files this report.

The team then scheduled a visit by free-agent guard Ray Allen for Friday, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The Clippers could use the mid-level exception for Allen and probably would offer him a two-year deal.

Landing Allen would give L.A. a pure shooter at the 2 spot and allow Crawford to occasionally slide on over to the small forward spot on occasion. With a lineup of Paul, Allen, Crawford, Odom and Griffin to finish off games (along with players like DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler), Los Angeles would sure have the playmakers and offensive arsenal to be competitive against the best the Western Conference has to offer.
