Rasheed Wallace "Serious" About Potential NBA Comeback

Friday January 13th, 2012

Former All-Star NBA big man Rasheed Wallace is considering a comeback, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Wallace, 37, had retired in 2010 but is reportedly “serious” about an NBA return this season. The 15-year veteran most recently played as a reserve for the Boston Celtics where he averaged 9.0 points and 4.1 rebounds in 22.5 minutes per game.

The four-time All-Star was at first known around the league for his unmatched temper, but later became considered by many as one of the most versatile forwards in the game. He is best known for playing a major role on the Detroit Pistons squad of the mid-2000’s that won back-to-back Eastern Conference Championships in 2004 and 2005.

Wallace also helped the Pistons win the NBA Championship in 2004.
