It appears veteran forward Gerald Wallace can’t get out of Boston fast enough and is doing everything he can to expedite a move.
Wallace, who was acquired by the Celtics in an offseason trade with the Brooklyn Nets isn’t part of Boston’s future plans and has continually been a sour apple in the locker room.
The former Sacramento Kings first round pick has voiced his displeasure with the Celtics roster multiple times this season, suggesting that his teammates don’t play with enough effort. He did so once again on Tuesday night, blasting anybody within range.
“You’re sitting, only playing 17 or 18 minutes a game,” Wallace said. “You’re watching, you know you can still play, and you watch guys in front of you who don’t play with effort, don’t respect the game and don’t think team first. It kind of frustrates you and (ticks) you off. You have to deal with it.”
Wallace wasn’t done, calling the season a ‘slap in the face’ and suggesting the constant soap opera of NBA life has created doubt in his mind.
A free agent at season end, it’s only a matter of time before the Celtics either trade Wallace or let him walk in a buyout situation if no trade can be made.
