For those who constantly feel the need for 'Sheed and were sad about his second retirement this past season, it looks as though we will still get to Wallace in the NBA next year, but as a coach and not as a player.

From the NBA's Hangtime Blog:

Jason Kidd isn’t the only former New York Knicks veteran to trade in his locker room stall for a spot in the coach’s locker room. In what has to qualify as the best news perhaps of the entire offseason, HT fave Rasheed Wallace will soon be announced as a member of the Detroit Pistons’ coaching staff under Mo Cheeks.

Wallace is in Orlando for summer league action with the Pistons and was spotted in the gym at the Amway Center this afternoon with a polo shirt on with the Pistons’ logo on the upper left side. Wallace helped the Pistons become an Eastern Conference power and won a ring in 2004 and made another trip to The Finals in 2005.

Looks like the Afternoon Delight from two years ago when the Pistons were hiring a new coach came true.

We will see how Rasheed Wallace's presence in Detroit influences the Pistons bigs this season, like  Drummond, and Monroe.
