Ben Wallace undecided about return, but reporters expect him back with Pistons

Ben Wallace has one year left on his contract, but at his age, retirement is always a possibility. A couple writers who saw him work out today think he’ll return.

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

#Pistons Ben Wallace just finished 2nd day of workouts: said he’s still undecided about coming back but all signs seem to lead to a return

Keith Langlois of

Ben Wallace just spoke … didn’t say he was for sure coming back, but all signs look positive. He appears in typical Ben Wallace shape.

Wallace’s production last year dropped from the season before, but if he returns, he sees a path to improvement. Goodwill:

Wallace believed his effectiveness was stunted last season because he often played too many consecutive minutes, then sat for long stretches

That was definitely the case under John Kuester, but I figured Wallace preferred to play long stretches once his body got loose rather than sitting, playing, sitting, playing. I guess not. We’ll see whether Lawrence Frank heeds Wallace’s request and whether it works.
