Rasheed Wallace in talks to become Pistons assistant coach

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News:

Rasheed Wallace is in talks with the Detroit Pistons to join Maurice Cheeks coaching staff

There is no doubt Wallace, who played for Cheeks in Portland, has the knowledge to coach and the temperament to work with younger players like Andre Drummond.

But being an assistant coach involves a lot of work, and Sheed hasn’t always poured his heart into things he doesn’t fully care about (e.g., the 2008-09 Pistons). Before he takes the position, Wallace must decide whether he wants to give all that energy for a job he once said he never wanted.
