Marc Spears of the Boston Globe is reporting (through an “NBA source”) that Rasheed Wallace has committed to sign with the Boston Celtics for what will reportedly be a two-year deal at the mid-level exception.
While on one hand it will be interesting to see how Sheed fits in with the city (aka… MEDIA), the fans, and of course the team, on the other hand the Celtics are getting an unbelievable deal. Jason Kidd is getting three years at 8 to 9 mill a year and Wallace is only getting two years at 5 to 6 million per? Wow. Solid work by the Boston front office.
We’re assuming that Wallace comes off the bench for the C’s, but either way he gives them tremendous insurance at both the center and power forward spots and much needed depth. It will be interesting to see if the Celtics let Big Baby walk now.
Thoughts on the deal and how this will effect the Eastern Conference?
