According to multiple reports out of New York, former Celtics forward Rasheed Wallace will sign a one-year contract with the Knicks for the veteran's minimum of $1.7 million.
The 38-year-old Wallace last played during the 2009-10 season, when he helped the Celtics reach Game 7 of the NBA finals.
Wallace reportedly spent much of last week at the Knicks' training facility, undergoing a physical with the team. He previously played under current Knicks coach Mike Woodson, who was an assistant with the Pistons during the forward's time in Detroit.
When asked about Wallace's return, Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters he wasn't surprised.
"I saw him at a couple of games last year, college games [because] he’s up in North Carolina a lot, and when we talked he was definitely throwing feelers out about playing, even last...
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Undrafted rookie free agent running back Brandon Bolden helped the Patriots make history Sunday in a 52-28 win over the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Ole Miss product gained 137 yards on just 16 carries and ran for his second touchdown in as many games, helping the Patriots notch a pair of 100-yard rushers for the first time in 32 years. Bolden and Stevan Ridley -- with 106 yards and two TDs on 22 carries -- were part of a Patriots rushing attack that gained 247 yards on 40 carries.
"We just stuck to the game plan, and I did what I was asked to do," Bolden said. "We made the best out of every opportunity."
Bolden also was part of NFL history as the Patriots became just the second team ever with a pair of 100-yard rushers and a pair of 100-yard receivers, as Wes Welker caught nine passes for 129 yards and Rob Gronkowski had five receptions for 104 yards. Bolden deferred all questions about the...
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Vince Wilfork had a huge impact on Sunday's 52-28 Patriots win over the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
The veteran defensive lineman tipped a passed that resulted in an interception, he recovered a fumble as the Bills were going in for a touchdown before the half and he demolished Bills wide receiver Donald Jones with a crushing hit over the middle as the Patriots used big hits and big defensive plays to turn the tide in the second half.
The Patriots trailed 21-7 after Ryan Fitzpatrick hit Jones for a 67-yard TD over the middle early in the third quarter. Then the big plays and big hits began.
"Continue to execute," Wilfork said. "We were giving up big plays and we were shooting ourselves in the foot offensively. Just going out in the second half, we just wanted to play better football for 30 more minutes and we got it together. We just kept our poise, and I think we showed a heart of a...
BALTIMORE -- In absorbing a 6-3 loss to the Orioles, the Red Sox fell to 69-90 for the season, thus becoming the first Red Sox team since 1966 to lose as many as 90 games in a season.
"We haven't had a good season," manager Bobby Valentine said after the loss. "Every loss hurts. All 90 of them."
The worst Sox season in decades does come with some ancillary benefits. The team is now assured of one of the top-10 picks in the 2013 draft, meaning that its selection will be protected should the Sox sign one of the elite free agents who receives a so-called qualifying offer this offseason.
For more on the impact of having a protected pick -- and some potential free agents whom the Sox now can sign without losing a first-round pick -- click here. For a look at some...
BALTIMORE -- With their fifth straight loss, the Red Sox dropped to 69-90 on the season. With just three games remaining, they can win no more than 72 contests this year, thus assuring the team of having one of the nine worst records in the big leagues this year.
With that status comes a considerable benefit. The Red Sox now are assured of having one of the top-10 picks in the 2013 major league draft, a significant development since not only does it mean that they get a high pick, but it also means that the Sox' pick is protected. Thus, if the Sox want to sign a free agent who receives a qualifying offer (one year and approximately $13 million) from his former club, the Sox will not forfeit their first-round selection. Instead, the team would lose its second-round choice if signing such a free agent.
The Sox will be picking in the top 10 for the first time since the 1993 draft, when they selected Trot Nixon with the No. 7 overall pick....
