Wallace never wanted a buyout
Contrary to published reports out of Cleveland, Rasheed Wallace never approached Joe Dumars about a buyout.
Could you imagine? Here’s Wallace, struggling most of the season, missing 11 games with a calf injury, coming into Dumars’ office and saying, “Joe, I need you to buy me out so I can finish the season with the Cavs. You know, help LeBron get that ‘ship.”
…Wallace, as Dumars confirmed through e-mail Tuesday, wouldn’t be that bold, or stupid.
