EAST GRANBY, Conn. — Ray Allen could play one more year in the NBA. He is wanted, and he knows it.

“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.
