Former Celtics big man Rasheed Wallace has drawn the interest of the New York Knicks, league sources told Newsday. Wallace's workout for the Knicks was first reported by ESPN.
Wallace last played for the Celtics during the 2009-10 season. The 38-year-old former All-Star averaged 9.0 points and 4.1 rebounds in 79 games for the Celtics that season. With Kendrick Perkins injured, Wallace was forced into a crucial starting role for Boston during Game 7 of the NBA Finals, playing 35 minutes as the Celtics lost Game 7, 83-79. After the game Doc Rivers questioned whether Wallace was in good enough condition to play heavy minutes. Wallace did not play in the league the last two seasons.
