New York Knicks Rumors: Rasheed Wallace Practices At Knicks Facility; Will He Join the Knicks?

Posted: 09/23/12 02:27AM EDT

Former all-star Rasheed Wallace last played in the NBA in 2010, in the biggest game of the year: Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Due to an injury to the Boston Celtic's starting center in the previous game, Wallace -- who had been a reserve with the Celtics all season -- was forced to start at center despite a bad back. Sheed gutted it out, scoring the first two buckets of the game and hitting a crucial three pointer in the final 30 seconds of the 4th quarter to keep the Celtics' hopes alive. Ultimately, they fell short to Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, and Wallace retired from the NBA after.

Rumors have been swirling about Wallace's return to the NBA since 2011, really, considering that he is a skilled 7-footer. The rumor in 2011 was a return to the Celtics, when that never happened, the next rumor popped up in 2012, with Wallace going to the Lakers.

But now, it seems a return to the NBA is likely, and it could be with another marquee franchise, the New York Knicks.

This rumor should be taken more seriously, because Wallace is actually practicing with the Knicks at the Knicks' facility in New York.

ESPN's Ric Bucher broke the news via Twitter minutes ago:

Wallace is 37 and hasn't played in the NBA in two years, but as mentioned before, he's a skilled big who can protect the rim, and these players will always be valuable. Plus, 37 isn't even that old by New York Knicks standards, considering they have 38 year old Marcus Camby, 39 year old Kurt Thomas, and 40 year old Jason Kidd.
