Rasheed Wallace can expect a phone call from the Orlando Magic, according to the ORLANDO SENTINEL. The team could attempt to convince Rasheed to come out of retirement, he finished last season in the NBA finals with the Celtics. Orlando had hoped to sign Troy Murphy, who picked the Celtics instead
Eye on 'Sheed
Orlando lost the Troy Murphy sweepstakes.
In a blow to the Magic, the 6-foot-11 power forward/center reportedly decided to sign with the Boston Celtics. Murphy should help the Celtics because he's a good rebounder who can stretch the floor with accurate outside shooting.
With Murphy now unavailable, it wouldn't be surprising if the Magic attempt to lure 6-foot-11 Rasheed Wallace out of retirement. Wallace hasn't played since Game 7 of last June's NBA Finals.
Many Magic players think highly of Wallace.
