Rumor: Rasheed Wallace ‘real interested’ in Bulls?
Former #Celtics F Rasheed Wallace is "real interested" in the #Bulls, source close to Wallace tells #CSNNE.com. Chi has some reservations.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Rasheed Wallace has interest in the Chicago Bulls, however, the feeling may not be mutual.
Wallace, once a premier power forward in the NBA, is looking to come out of retirement and join a contender for a title run.
On paper, the Bulls could use Wallace. He defends, has championship experience, and would provide another option on the block and perimeter.
The reality would be more complicated. The Bulls are a young, impressionable bunch, and Wallace’s temperament and affinity for collecting technical fouls (see video) might not be the best influence.
For instance, Wallace excelled on experienced teams like Boston and Detroit, where Celtic and Piston veterans like Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Chauncey Billups, Rip Hamilton and Ben Wallace kept him in line.
The younger Bulls, even though they recently signed Hamilton, lack veterans. So expect them to pass on ‘Sheed.
