Rumor: Rasheed Wallace ‘real interested’ in Bulls?

Former #Celtics F Rasheed Wallace is "real interested" in the #Bulls, source close to Wallace tells 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.

Video: Piston players laugh when Coach Kuester ejected

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Yesterday was not good for the Detroit Pistons.

Veterans Rip Hamilton, Tracy McGrady, Tayshaun Prince, Ben Wallace, and Chris Wilcox skipped the morning shootaround as a way of protesting against Coach John Kuester.

Many of those same players were caught by television cameras laughing on the bench when Kuester was ejected from the Pistons’ game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Clearly, something has to give with the Pistons. And soon.

Watch the clip below of Kuester’s ejection and get at us with thoughts on the mess in Detroit.
