Via A. Sherrod Blakely:
“I know Rasheed is thinking about coming back,” said O’Neal, who was in attendance at a charity basketball game in Orlando, Fla. “Rasheed, go on and come back for one or two more years.”
If Sheed comes back, the C’s might have too many big men. The C’s currently have 13 players locked up and likely to play next season. The league maximum is 15, three of whom would have to be on the inactive list every game, meaning they’d be in street clothes or the D-League.
If the 14th and 15th roster spots go to Rasheed Wallace and Luke Harangody, the C’s will have 8 big men and 7 guards/swing men. I’m not sure what the ideal distribution of players is on any particularly team, but I’d still prefer adding another swing man capable of backing up Ray Allen, Paul Pierce or both. Avery Bradley is a rookie, Von Wafer is a wild card and Marquis Daniels has played more than 62 games just once in his career.
Some roster comparison: The C’s had just six bigs on the roster last season, and that’s counting Scal as a big.
So somehow it’s mid-August and Rasheed Wallace is still driving me nuts.
