Default Ben Wallace...Whats everyones view?

Ben Wallace hasn't been in the paper as much as I thought he would...What does everyone think he might do? Go back to a franchise that won Championships, or try something new and see if he can lead a squad to the finals? I think Ben Wallace told me he likes Toronto Maybe....Ok, I dun actually know him...

I'm a big Wallace fan and think he would be a perfect fit in T.O. That being said he is 32 and will demand a big contract. Is he what we need considering his age and price tag? Are we what he wants at this stage in his career? Unlikely.

I don’t see him in a Raps jersey next year. I wouldn’t mind if he was, but only for a short-term deal.

Too old to lock in long term. Short term would be PERFECT!

No thanks.

He'll likely only be getting worse from now on, he's seeking a long-term deal with $10+ million per year. Since he alone won't change the Raptors into instant title contenders, there's no point in overpaying him.

I love Ben Wallace but at the stage of his career and more importantly the stage of our franchise it wouldn't be worth it.

He's already 32.

By the time Bosh and Villanueva peak, he's already too old.

Thumbs down

I'd only want him if the price is right and the Raps don't have to give up the #1 pick and/or Charlie V .

And you can say that's about as likely scenario as the Raptors trading for Wince Carter.

He's still the DPOY, and he'd definitely help the Raps. But, he's gonna be like 32 next season and he won't come cheap.
