Greek team reportedly wants Ben Wallace

Gazzetta.gr via Google translation (hat tip: SB Nation):

The transcription of the summer chasing Panathinaikos who, according to exclusive information gazzetta.gr, consider the case of Ben Wallace.

The "green" they want to change the balance not only in Greece but also in Europe with a resonant transfer and therefore consider the case of Ben Wallace. The 38 year old center-to 16-year career in the NBA is free and is pretty high on the list Pedoulaki Argyris. The Greek coach of the "cloverleaf" lookingboulder-player on defense … will download all the rebounds and will cover the basket of ‘green’, so it considers the case of the American Center, which seems to be the ideal as it covers everything you ask the coach of Panathinaikos.

Three thoughts that aren’t necessarily consistent with each other:

1. I’d be surprised if Ben Wallace plays for a team other than the Pistons next season.

2. Joe Dumars and Wallace talk every other day. Though the Pistons didn’t have to give Khris Middleton a contract tender until September, they signed him this week. Days later, a report emerges a Greek team is interest in Wallace. Maybe Dumars and Wallace are on the same page that Wallace won’t be a Pistons next season.

3. Perhaps, Panathinaikos realized the Pistons’ roster is now full, therefore assumed Wallace was available and hasn’t even spoken to him yet.

Also, this is far less relevant, but I really enjoyed this translated line about Wallace:

The wool reminds Josh Childress. Ben Wallace most of his career appeared to kotsidakia to … picking the hair broom available.
