The New York Knicks are set to sign 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace and when they do they will officially become the oldest team in NBA history, according to The Wall Street Journal citing Stats LLC:

Assuming Wallace signs, their top 13 players would be, on average, 32 years and 240 days old—the oldest team in NBA history, according to Stats LLC. No team has ever gotten so much older from one season to the next.

The average age of a player on the Knicks has increased by almost five years from year to date. General manager Glen Grunwald called the current team "hungry veterans that know how to win."
