    So Ben Wallace got bought out. I am 100% for bringing him in to help out, teach our young guys, and retire a piston in a year or two.

    Have him be here when they retire his jersey. To me, he was the 04 championship and the finals MVP.

    He can be a good leader to everyone on the team.

    I like it!! He's the vet big we've been talking about needing. I'm sure Joe could get him for cheap. I wonder if he would want to come back here.

    I'm guessing NO. He probably wants to start living his life after basketball. Wish him well!

    Fear the fro!

    He could well retire. And it might be tough for him to find a team able and willing to pony up the $1.2mm vet minimum.

    I think it's worth a sales pitch. I'd love to hear the bell and Mason saying Ben BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBwallace again.

    He talked about a contract buyout as soon as the Cavs were eliminated from the playoffs..

    He didn't want to play another season for medical reasons if I recall correctly...

    Sitting on the bench, helping the young guys, and going out a Piston with class doesnt take much playing time.

    I am not saying he starts and guards shaq all game long, just would love to see him go out a Piston.

    I think Ben is hoping to be reunited with Flip Saunders in Washington.

    Love it!It would be great if we pick him for vet min.Yes he won't be the same player he was,but here he has real chance to play and make an impact to the team and maybe his bad luck with injurys will finaly end.

    That's why we we call it a "pack" instead of a bag.
