Ben Wallace Could Play In Greece Next Season, According To Report

Ben Wallace had originally planned to retire following last season with the Detroit Pistons. Things changed over the summer, however, and the defensive stalwart decided he had one more year left playing professional basketball -- he just wasn't sure where that season would see him end up.

The latest news indicated that he was "50-50" on returning to Detroit, but there didn't seem to be many other options available for him to choose from. News from across the pond indicates that Greek basketball club Panthinaikos is interested in his skills, however, according to the media outlet Gazetta (by way of Sportando).

The team, based in Athens, employed one player -- former Indiana Pacers guard Sarunas Jasikevicius -- with NBA experience last season.
