Reject/Delay Decision on Research Assistant Position

Howdy, all. I've been offered a research assistant position with a professor but have yet to hear back on the job I really want this summer (legal aid). Is it a big no-no to ask a professor for additional time to consider the offer?

FWIW, I'd like to work with the professor at some point, preferably during a semester, but think a summer job with legal aid would be more beneficial in setting up my future career.

Thanks!

How much work does the RA position require? Some people work and serve as a RA during the summer.
