Update: CSNNE - Link

ORLANDO, Fla. — There's at least one team apparently still with a need for Rasheed Wallace.

CSNNE.com has learned that the former Boston Celtic forward plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Wallace hasn't played in an NBA game since Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, alerting the C's shortly before the game that he planned to retire.

His addition will likely fuel rumors that the Lakers will become even more aggressive in their decision to trade away Pau Gasol.

However, a front office executive whose team has had both internal and external discussions about Gasol, said the addition of Wallace will only be to strengthen their bench.

"His days as a starter in this league are gone," said the source. "I think he knows that, and so do the Lakers. But think about it. Of the big men that are available, is there one that's really better? And if he's gotten himself in shape, adding him becomes a huge get for them."

Now I am certain we are going to move gasol or Bynum. Why in gods name would we sign Wallace instead of Arenas when forwards aren't our problem? A PG is what we need. This signing made no sense. That's why I believe something big is going to happen soon.

McRoberts will probably go. We're waiting for March 1 so we can deal him.

Good signing. He can make 3s, play D and he is a tough guy. Good move.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I'm puzzled. Must be a plan to all this, let's wait and see.............

Seasons the Celtics lost ECF when Lakers won the championship (7): 1953, 1954, 1972, 1980, 1982, 1988, 2002
In NBA history, the Lakers have finished better than the Celtics by a margin of 41-25!

Add Kobe to the list as well. The Lakers will lead the league in T's.

With Murphy, McRoberts, and Gasol already, there has to be something in the works.
