Rasheed Wallace To Join Knicks Training Camp

The return of Sheed is official. Rasheed Wallace was out of shape for his initial workout, but a source tells the NY Post that Wallace will attend the Knicks’ training camp next week: “Rasheed Wallace will officially become a Knick on Monday. Wallace has told the Knicks he has elected to come out of retirement and join their training camp, according to an NBA source. The 6-foot-11 Wallace, who worked out with the Knicks over the weekend, retired two years ago after a disappointing season with the Celtics. The Knicks are expected to announce the signing Monday at Media Day. The first practices begin Tuesday. The tempestuous Wallace, 38, will become the fifth Knick over the age of 35, joining Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby, Kurt Thomas and Pablo Prigioni. Though contracts haven’t been signed, there are indications Wallace has participated in voluntary workouts in Westchester across the past few days. Pending results of a physical he took Wednesday, Wallace will become Amar’e Stoudemire’s backup at power forward.”

    If they are giving wallace a chance to train why cant they give Iverson a chance,

  • shockexchange

    Seems like everybody wants Iverson back but the owners. Every dark cloud has a silver lining though – he’ll never have to “talk about practice” ever again.

  • Junior Taylor

    Because Rasheed is more than willing to come off the bench, AI on the other hand……

    Amare scares teams from attacking the basket?

  • Phil

    This team just gets worse and worse while it’s fans get dumb and dumber!

    Knicks starting to turn into a retirement home..

  • Bash

    Why would we sign this has-been? May as well have re-signed Willis Reed or Herb Williams. Being a Knicks fan is so painful…..(sigh)

  • Clydesays

    He’s done. He showed to the C’s camp 2 years ago out of shape and didnt do much more than collect his checks….
