Rasheed Wallace reportedly is coming out of retirement to join the Knicks.
The 38-year-old versatile forward hasn’t played in the NBA the last two seasons. He averaged 9 points and 4.1 rebounds per game while shooting 40.9% from the field in the 2009-2010 season for the Celtics. Although he looked old and ineffective that season (and embarrassing), the Knicks appear to be interested in what he can offer them.
The New York Post reports that Sheed will sign with the team for the veteran’s minimum of $1.7 million on Monday, the day before the squad’s first practice on Tuesday. He has been working out with the team and supposedly looks good.
“I don’t know if he signed yet but he has looked good from the time he has been with us,” Amar’e Stoudemire told the Post.
The Post also reports that Sheed’s good relationship with head coach Mike Woodson, who was an assistant coach for Detroit’s 2004 championship team for whom Wallace played, is a big reason why he’s making the comeback.
