Rasheed Wallace To Join Knicks Training Camp

by September 29, 2012

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.”
