Before the All-Star Game, a CSNNE.com story suggested Rasheed Wallace would come out of retirement and play for the Lakers. It appears that report was a little premature. Still, Wallace is indeed considering a return to the NBA, and recently worked out for the Heat, tweets Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida.
According to Tomasson's source, Wallace hasn't decided yet whether or not he wants to play, and is keeping mum on the subject for now since he "doesn't want to cause a lot of hoopla" if he stays retired. If the Heat were interested in adding him, however, Wallace would consider it (Twitter links).
As for the rumored Wallace-to-the-Lakers move that never materialized, I have to think there was something there, particularly since the team never publicly shot it down. But clearly the two sides weren't as close to an agreement as was believed. CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely covered Wallace on the Pistons for years, so perhaps he heard from the big man's camp that he planned to sign with Los Angeles, while the Lakers themselves were still undecided on how to use their open roster spot — that's just a guess though.
