Ben Wallace’s path back to Pistons now clear?


By trading two players (Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye) for one (Jose Calderon), the Pistons now have an open roster spot. Patrick just reminded me of something Ben Wallace said in December:

"“I’m not retired,” Wallace said. “It’s a good chance I’ll be playing again. Nobody wants to file those (retirement) papers, that’s a hassle.”Wallace, 38, believes something will happen soon to make a way for him. It’s important to note he said he’d never wear a jersey other than the Pistons’ red, white and blue, so one has to wonder if a spot will open up — or if he’s willing to back off that statement to get back on the court."

Was this the something that would happen soon? I sure hope so.
