Source: Rasheed Wallace to Sign with Lakers

According to CSN New England, Rasheed Wallace plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers:

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.

Wallace, 37,  has career averages of 14.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game.

Back on January 31st, Marc Spears from Yahoo! Sports reported that if the Lakers did not land Kenyon Martin they could be interested in Rasheed Wallace.

A league source also told Yahoo! that Wallace reached out to the Lakers earlier this season.
