LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Former Boston Celtic Rasheed Wallace intends to come out of retirement and sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to a report from A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.
Wallace has been out of the league since losing Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals against the Lakers.
Blakely, appearing on the Mason and Ireland show on ESPN 710 to clarify his report, indicated Wallace hasn’t been offered a job, but has been in contact with the team.
The Lakers have an open roster spot after they cut Derrick Caracter earlier in the month.
Wallace, 37, has appeared in four All-Star games, and averaged 14 points and 6.7 rebounds per game over his career.
