Celtics president Danny Ainge made Rasheed Wallace?s future with the team perfectly clear Thursday morning.
"Rasheed has decided that he's retiring," Ainge said on WEEI?s Dennis and Callahan Show. "He's going to retire."
Apparently, that may not be the case.
The Boston Globe reports that Wallace?s agent, Bill Strickland, was noncommittal about his client?s possible retirement when reached by phone.
"I won't confirm or deny that that's the case," Strickland told the Globe.
That?s quite the turnaround from Strickland?s comment in June, when he basically confirmed Wallace?s impending retirement.
"If I had to bet my money, I would say he's done,? Strickland told the Globe on June 24, the night of the NBA draft.
Now, Wallace might not be ready to hang up the sneakers.
