The Los Angeles Clippers are out of battle to get free agent Ray Allen.

According to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the Clippers will sign guards Jamal Crawford and Chauncey Billups, effectively ending their pursuit of Allen.

Crawford, an unrestricted free agent who opted out of his $5.2 million contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, has been offered a spot by the Clippers. He is expected to sign a three-year, $15.7 million contract, according to the executives.

Turner reports the Billups' contract is a one-year deal worth up to $4.3 million. He played only 20 games last season due to a torn Achilles tendon.

Allen had a visit scheduled for Friday in Los Angeles, but that visit has since been canceled.

The veteran sharpshooter is still being targeted by his current team, the Boston Celtics, as well as the newly crowned NBA champions Miami Heat. Before the news broke that Allen would not be visiting L.A., Heat guard Dwyane Wade sent this tweet to Clippers point guard Chris Paul.
