It’s Final: Rasheed Wallace Is Retiring

by August 09, 2010

Contrary to Shaq’s rumor mongering, Rasheed Wallace is done with the NBA. At least that’s what his agent told the Boston Globe: “After weeks of speculation about his status for next year, Rasheed Wallace indeed plans to retire, according to his agent, Bill Strickland. Newest Celtic Shaquille O’Neal told reporters in Orlando this weekend that Wallace was rethinking his decision to retire and pleaded with the four-time All-Star to return for at least another season. Strickland told the Globe on Monday that his client will not return to the Celtics…Wallace has two years and $13 million left on his contract and the Celtics could reach a settlement with the power forward or trade his contract to a club who could receive the salary cap relief after the 2012 season.”
