Wallace Not Happy With Pistons Offer

by | Jul 3, 2006 | 15 comments

The Detroit News is reporting that Ben Wallace is dissapointed with the Pistons offer.

The Pistons’ negotiations to re-sign free agent Ben Wallace have gotten off to a rough start.

Wallace, in an interview with The Detroit News on Sunday, said he wasn’t pleased with the Pistons’ initial offer.

“It was disappointing,” he said. “It was not at all what I expected.”

The Pistons’ initial offer was a four-year deal starting at $11.5 million and would pay him $49.6 million over four years. It would make Wallace the highest-paid player on the team next season, eclipsing Rasheed Wallace’s salary by $100,000.

Pistons president Joe Dumars, reached by e-mail, said he didn’t want to negotiate through the newspaper and declined comment. Via The Detroit News

    if ben goes to chicago for a couple extra million dollars then he’s just being a selfish asshole. detroit is the team that gave him the opportunity to be known and be in the situation to be the top free agent in the off-season. if he just walks out on detroit for just a couple extra million, fuck.

    I will never again cheer for Ben Wallace. ESPN.com is reporting that Ben has informed the Pistons that he will sign with the Bulls on July 12th. F**k him. He may make his extra million a year, but he’ll never be welcome back in Detroit.

    The Bulls have offered 60 million for 4 years. It Sucks but the pistons only offered him 48 mil. 12 million dollars is a lotta money
    and most likely this is his last big contract. It’s Sad but i guess it’s all about the BENjamins:(

    Ben is leaving for more money and I still believe Flip Saunders. He wants to be part of the offense. Flip doesn’t know how to make him part of the offense because he has no offensive abilities, what can Flip really do?
