NBA Free-Agent Signings | Rasheed Wallace to Celtics

Category: Basketball


Forward Rasheed Wallace of the Detroit Pistons has finally committed to play for the

Rasheed Wallace and Kevin Garnett

Boston Celtics next season agreeing on a two-year deal that  starts at the mid-level exception (expected to be about $5.6 million to $5.8 million).


In Wallace, the Boston Celtics are hoping to add a versatile player that is tough, a hard-nosed defender and is a scoring threat from anywhere on the court. He is however volatile and hot-headed leading the NBA in technical fouls for many seasons (even setting a record 41 in 2000–2001).

But he has proven that he can be a very valuable addition to a roster  due to his strong desire to win. He was a big factor to the Detroit Pistons winning the 2004 NBA Championship. He is also a big friend of Kevin Garnett which might help him rein in his silly outbursts.

With Rasheed Wallace playing center, the Boston Celtics will have a possible starting lineup of Kevin Garnett (PF), Paul Pierce (SF), Ray Allen (SG) and Rajon Rondo (PG). Wow, the Boston Celtics looks to be a very formidable team on paper next season!

It’s a classic case of the rich getting richer.


UPDATE October 28, 2009: Will Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics reclaim their throne with a front court boost in ‘Sheed?

    The Lakers, Spurs, Cavs and the Magic have also upgraded their rosters. It will be an exciting and unpredictable season full of surprises.

    With a healthy KG, the Celtics are looking like the team 2 beat in the east.

    I think they’re just a healthy KG away from returning to the NBA Finals last season. They should be a strong contender again if KG remains healthy.

    Can the Celtics make a serious run for the NBA championship? After their performance with the Pistons I might say, why not! However, after their games against the Grizzlies and the Cavaliers, not so sure. Opinions appear to be evenly cut between attainable and unlikely. Your thoughts?
