Rasheed Wallace is contemplating a comeback to the NBA, league sources told 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.
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. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
I know some of you guys are gonna say he's washed up and old, but Sheed displayed tremendous defense against a much younger Pau Gasol in the 2010 NBA Finals. Taking a chance on him won't hurt at all.
This team needs a post player badly! It is so pathetic that we only have one true post player - Melo - and he isn't even a PF or C. Sheed is a proven post player and has a decent jump shot. Knicks need to seize the opportunity and sign him if these sources are for real.
