After weeks of speculation about his status for next year, Rasheed
Wallace indeed plans to retire, according to his agent, Bill Strickland.
Newest Celtic Shaquille O'Neal told reporters in Orlando this weekend
that Wallace was rethinking his decision to retire and pleaded with the
four-time All-Star to return for at least another season. Strickland
told the Globe on Monday that his client will not return to the Celtics.
I'm sure Shaq's comments did not help the already thin market for Wallace's contract.
Danny Ainge may have put a call into Bill Strickland and asked for him to go public and put the rumors to rest.
