Default Re: Celtics have waived Rasheed Wallace

Hmmm I wonder if Sheed wouldn't mind playing one more year here. Since we lost Juwan. I wonder if he changed his attitude so he could be a veteran leader. I think Portland doesn't want to open that can of worms. He was my favorite player when he was here.

His best years were in Portland. I still have the Oregonian from when he was traded.

Why does everybody keep saying that Boston could have traded his "valuable" contract?

his contract was not even an expirer and altough Rasheed leaves the money on the table, it still counts against the salary cap and even against the luxury tax (which actually must be paid after Sheeds contract) for the taker for 2 more seasons at ~$7 million per year.

His contract was basically untradeable until next seasons trade deadline...

The buyout at least cuts his cap hold a little bit...

If he gets waived, but doesn't sign with a team or officially sign retirement papers, is he allowed to come back last minute during the season for a playoff run with the Celtics?

(Seems like it would be illegal, but just want clarification)

Watch the Celtics re-sign him in December for the veteran's minimum.

It's a shame because he's the reason why Boston went all the way to the NBA finals. I wish he hadn't retired, but is his choice. I guess the bright side about all of this [at least for us Heat fans] is that Boston got weaker. Rasheed brings more to the team than Shaq.
