Report: Rasheed Wallace ‘Serious’ About an NBA Comeback

by January 13, 2012

If all breaks right, Rasheed Wallace’s tattered sweat pants and fresh AF1s may again soon be gracing an NBA arena near you. Reports Yahoo! Sports: “Wallace, who retired after 15 seasons in 2010, has been working out and probing some close league friends about possible destinations to sign for the rest of the season, sources said. Rasheed Wallace averaged 9.0 points and 4.1 rebounds per game for the Celtics during the 2009-10 season. At 6-foot-11, Wallace, 37, had been one of the most versatile and talented power forwards of his era. One league source who has talked with Wallace recently describes him as ‘serious’ about a return to the NBA this season. Nevertheless, no teams contacted by Yahoo! Sports reported that they had any contact with Wallace, or his representative. When reached on Friday, Wallace’s agent, Bill Strickland, would only tell Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears: ‘As a veteran player, [Wallace] knows what it takes to be reinstated.'”
