Greek Team Panathinaikos Reportedly Interested in Ben Wallace

Free agent center Ben Wallace, who is still undecided on his NBA future, is reportedly being pursued by Greek team Panathinaikos. Wallace, who turns 38 in less than a month, has played nine of his 16 NBA seasons with the Detroit Pistons. The prospect of Big Ben going overseas is highly unlikely, but still, stranger things have happened. Via MLive.com: “According to a story on the website gazzetta.gr, Panathinaikos Basketball Club has shown interest in Wallace, an unrestricted free agent who has yet to announce his intentions for next season. It seems unlikely Wallace would be interested in continuing his career overseas since he turns 38 in less than a month and might be unwilling to either relocate his family or leave them behind in the United States at this point in his life.”

    im sure there are nba teams that are still interested in wallace, i doubt vets minimum would make him come back, hes already done it all and is the best undrafted player off all time and one of the best defenders under 6″10 if not the best of all time
