Rasheed Wallace commits to Boston Celtics

Quote:

An NBA source said tonight that Detroit free agent forward Rasheed Wallace has committed to sign with the Celtics on July 8 when free agents are able to sign. Wallace is expected to get a two-year deal using the mid-level exception (expected to be about $5.6 million to $5.8 million). Celtics All-Star trio of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, owner Wyc Grousbeck, coach Doc Rivers and president Danny Ainge met with Wallace last week. Wallace turned down overtures from Orlando and San Antonio to commit to Boston.
The Celtics also have interest in Suns free agent forward Grant Hill. Despite a Fanhouse report that Rivers was to meet with Hill today in Orlando, its uncertain if he did and Rivers declined comment. All Boston can offer is the $1.9 million bi-annual exception.

Who's Cleveland going to go after now?

Linus Kleiza? Channing Frye? Chris Wilcox?

I don't think Cleveland was going after Sheed too hard.

Bigger question, who do Orlando and San Antonio go after?? Bass and Big Baby?

Good, now we have market value for McDyess. One year, MLE; team option for a second year?? Although I'd be satified with him getting the same deal as Rasheed.

Bass to New Orleans. Celtics will probably match any offer for big baby.
McDyess or Powe are still in play.

You know they say Grant Hill will be offered the bi-annual exception.

But I really think Hill's sexuality shouldn't have anything to do with it. That's just wrong.

So Sheed at the C or off the bench?

Best of luck to you, Sheed.
Thanks for the years of work you put here in Detroit.

Should work out ok for the Celtics. Looking good, Boston!

Spurs have to go after Mcdyess now otherwise their quest for a good big man will be gone.

Off the bench I would think. Celtics have enough scoring in the starting lineup already.

Ainge has said he is not done signing players..Since Grant Hill met with Doc he could very well be next..and we will re-sign BBD.
