Even while basking in the glow of an NBA championship, even as he became prince of Motown, the final piece to Detroit's championship puzzle, Rasheed Wallace maintained that his wife and kids will make the final decision on whether he will re-sign with the Pistons as a free agent.
So the Knicks still are in the game, although ever so slightly. As the celebration carried on inside the Pistons' locker room Tuesday night, Bill Strickland, Wallace's agent, was asked by The Post if Wallace still will consider the Knicks come July 1, The agent said, "Perhaps, given how hard he tried to get there before he got here."

I'd think we'd have a better shot at a player like Crawford or Jamison over Kobe... The Lakers are willing to part ways with Shaq to keep him around, thats gotta say something. Shaq, I think will ultimately head to Orlando again, he is too expensive for the Knicks to consider. If Wallace still wants to be in NY, I would embrace that decision as well, but I think he will remain a Piston.
Rasheed Wallace already has decided to sign with the New York Knicks if Isiah Thomas can work out a sign-and-deal trade with the Detroit Pistons - or if Wallace were willing to sign in New York for the mid-level exception.
Monroe: Anyone who heard Wallace's comments not more than 45 minutes after he helped the Pistons win the NBA championship knows his options are open, and that New York is a preferred destination. It will be up to Pistons GM Joe Dumars to convince him to stay. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
this article appeared in a san antonio newspaper, to read the whole story you'll have to be registered user, so i copy/pasted what was important.
now what do you think about this? real or bogus? makes you think how come it appeared in a texan paper instead of a new york or michigan one
Would love to see Rasheed in a Knicks uniform.
Very small chance that would take a miracle.
Tell you the truth I don't care what the Pistons or Sheed says to the papers. All I'm hoping is that his wife will tell him New York is where she wants to be.
