Ray Allen ponders joining LeBron James in Cleveland or retirement

EAST GRANBY, Conn. — Ray Allen could play one more year in the NBA. He is wanted, and he knows it.
Or he could retire with no regrets, all business finished.
“I’m not in any rush (to make a decision),” the former Sonics star said. “I’ve played 18 years, and the way I look at my career, I’m content with everything that I’ve done. I just want to take this summer and see how it goes.”
Allen, who averaged 26 minutes and 9.6 points off the bench and made 37.5 percent of his three-point shots last season for Miami, is taking calls from LeBron James and others hoping to lure him to Cleveland, where he would rejoin James.
“To continue playing, really, the only argument is I can because I’m in great shape,” Allen said. “But just because you can doesn’t mean you have to. … My argument for not playing is ... I’m 39, there are so many things in life I want to be able to do to affect change — like being around kids full time, which I enjoy.
“So at this point, I just feel so good about where I am.”
