The New York Knicks have continued with the theme of adding veteran players with their recent signing of Rasheed Wallace. The deal was hinted at several times, but ESPN reports that Wallace is now officially a member of the Knicks.
Wallace, 38, last played for the Boston Celtics but decided to call it quits after the 2009-2010 season. Wallace has played 15 seasons in the NBA and he experienced the most success while with the Detroit Pistons. In the Motor City, Wallace won an NBA championship and was a key to the 2004 title run.
Veteran forward Rasheed Wallace officially has come out of retirement and signed with the New York Knicks, the team announced Wednesday.
Wallace has some experience with the Knicks’ personnel as head coach Mike Woodson was an assistant with the Pistons when Wallace played there. That will make Wallace’s transition to New York even smoother and he hopes he can help this team make a deep playoff run in 2013.
The Knicks already have an old roster, but this addition of Rasheed Wallace makes them the oldest team in NBA history.
