Former All-Stars Ray Allen and Amar'e Stoudemire are being targeted by multiple NBA teams, according to Oregon Live.

Two-time NBA champion and former All-Star Ray Allen is set to decide on whether he will sign on to a team or to simply sit the season out after the All-Star break, according to ESPN.

If Allen chooses to play, he would be suiting up for his 19th NBA season, ESPN added.

The list of teams who may be interested to sign the former All-Star include the Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and Washington Wizards.

Allen played for the Miami Heat last year.

He put up 9.3 points per game while shooting 39 percent from three-point range during the Heat's playoff run last year. He played in 20 games during the postseason before the team eventually lost in the NBA Finals to the San Antonio Spurs, recalled ESPN.

His former teammate LeBron James is hoping that Allen would eventually choose the Cavs.

"But that's up to him. This guy has done everything he needs to do in his career. He doesn't need to be pressured by anyone. We have roster spots open, but with him we'd be great, without him, we're going to be great as well. But it would be a great addition. We'll see what he does," James was quoted by ESPN as saying.

New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire has also been mentioned as a player possibly in line to change teams sooner rather than later, according to the New York Daily News.

Stoudemire talked about his desire to play for a championship in an interview Wednesday after the Knicks' lost to the Orlando Magic 89-83. He said, "Obviously playing through these 13 years and through the few injuries, Father Time is ticking. So you know that you want to take advantage of good health when you can and try to win a championship when you can."

Happy Walters, Stoudemire's agent, has confirmed he has had preliminary talks with the New York Knicks with regards to a possible buyout considering his client, the New York Daily News reported.

A buyout would allow Stoudemire to leave the Knicks and sign on with any team he chooses.

The Dallas Mavericks are considered as the frontrunner for Stoudemire's services should he be able to secure a buyout, according to ESPN Dallas.

The Mavericks can reportedly offer Stoudemire the league minimum salary if he chooses to sign with them.

Another team showing interest in signing Stoudemire would be the Warriors, according to Mercury News.
