08:09 AM ET 09.24 | Just how interested in a big man are the Knicks? [They're] considering signing former All-Star big man Rasheed Wallace, league sources said. Wallace, 38, hasn't played in the NBA since the 2009-10 season. But multiple sources said Wallace worked out at the Knicks' practice facility last week and is considering a return to the NBA. He has a good relationship with Knicks coach Mike Woodson, who was an assistant with Detroit when Wallace helped the Pistons win the 2004 NBA championship. ESPN.com first reported Wallace had worked out for the Knicks. The Knicks are looking for a defensive-minded backup power forward/center. Wallace can be volatile, but he would seem to be a low-risk, high-reward option for the veteran team.

There is nothing wrong with being over 35!
Oh wait, we are talking about a young man's sport.
Carry on

I would pay to see Ewing play. Never had the chance in the 80's or 90's.... I wish the all-star weekend had the old timers game again.... Ewing was awesome.... Until the Knicks organization didnt protect him in his long-tooth yrs... They should hire him as an assistant, then in two yrs after they've stopped listening to Woodson. Have a big announcement, Yours trully Theee Patrick Ewing, Head coach of the New York Knickerbockers..... It would be epic and he deserves a chance.

If anything they are going to hire him as a player-coach a la Bill Russell, unless they consider him to be too young.
