Rasheed Wallace Looking for Perfect Match
If Rasheed Wallace comes out of retirement to join the Knicks, it will be because he feels the team is the perfect match for his veteran leadership and talent. That is what his agent, Bill Strickland, said Monday.
Wallace, 38, worked out with the Knicks on Saturday at their practice gym in Greenburgh. Strickland would not say how serious Wallace was about signing with the Knicks, but he said Wallace had set up the workout and had been the one discussing a possible deal with the team.
“I have not had any official conversation with the Knicks organization,” Strickland said. “If something happens, I will be more of a facilitator rather than an adviser. This decision is totally up to him as to what he will or will not do.”
Strickland said Wallace will not sign with just any team this season. He said Wallace – who the Knicks can give only the league minimum – will evaluate a team’s talent, its coaching style, its chemistry and what his role will be.
