Rasheed_Wallace_2013 [1]We’d known for a while Rasheed Wallace was going to be hired by the Detroit Pistons as a coach and he had been working with players at the Pistons’ facilities prior to training camp opening next week.

Now it’s official, the Pistons announced — Rasheed Wallace has been added as a player development coach with the Pistons.

Pistons big men Josh Smith and Andre Drummond both had talked before about working with ‘Sheed and praised him.

“Rasheed has been teaching me some things that I need to know on the block; some veteran leadership from him,” Smith said. “He has been able to show me some things. It’s always beneficial when you have a veteran guy who has played in the NBA and been successful and now they’re coaches. They can see things from a player’s and a coach’s standpoint.”
