Detroit Pistons Rumors: Ben Wallace Still Mulling Return

When team facilities opened after the NBA lockout was resolved, Ben Wallace was the first player to arrive at The Palace.  That shouldn't be a surprise, but the 15 year veteran isn't even sure he'll be a Piston this year. Currently considering retirement, he's working out hard to see if he wants to return to the team where he became a household name for the final year of his contract: 

"I just want to get in the gym a couple of more days, get up and down, pound that hardwood and see what happens on the off days," he said after his second straight day of workouts at the Pistons' practice facility since NBA teams were given the OK to make them available to players. "That's usually when you can tell. If I come in here and go hard for two hours, 2½ hours, go home and can't move the next day, that's not a good sign. But if I can get up and get around and run behind the kids and do my usual, that tells me my body is getting strong."

Wallace is due a little over $2 million for the 2011-2012 season and if he returns, will likely have a handful of planned DNPs due to the grueling, condensed schedule.
