Rasheed Wallace to Sign with the Lakers

The lasting memory Boston fans have of Rasheed Wallace is him giving everything he had left in the Finals against the Lakers in 2010. Playing with some bigtime aches and cramps, Wallace filled in admirably for the injured Kendrick Perkins, finishing with 11 points and eight rebounds before fouling out in the closing moments of the Game 7 loss.

Wallace has not played an NBA game since, but that’s about to change.¬†According to several reports, Wallace has agreed to sign with the Lakers.

CSNNE’s A. Sherrod Blakely reported that the Celtics were not interested in re-signing the 37-year-old Wallace, and he wasn’t interested in returning.

Wallace retired after the 2010 season and agreed to a buyout of the two years remaining on his contract with the C’s.

He won an NBA title back in 2004 with the Detroit Pistons.
