Recent reports indicated that Rasheed Wallace might be reconsidering his decision to retire. Celtics coach Doc Rivers, however, said Monday from the Summer League in Orlando that Wallace is helping the team by delaying an official decision.

“He’s trying to help us out by waiting, which is good,” Rivers said in a story at AOL FanHouse. “He’s still our property so we can use that in a trade or something. He’s doing a great thing for us.”

Rivers said the chances that Wallace will return are “very little or none.”

Wallace is scheduled to make $6.32 next season and $6.79 million in 2011-12.

According to an ESPN report by Chris Broussard, the Raptors are amenable to a sign-and-trade deal that would send free agent forward Chris Bosh from Toronto to Cleveland. The report speculates that Toronto might receive Anderson Varejao and/or J.J. Hickson, Delonte West and possibly Anthony Parker.

However, despite recruiting attempts by LeBron James, Bosh is rumored to have limited interest in playing in Cleveland. The story cites sources as saying Bosh would prefer to team up with James or Dwyane Wade in Chicago, Miami or New Jersey.

The Hawks, who agreed to a max contract with Joe Johnson over the weekend, are in need of a center.

“I think he wants to see how everything shakes out with all the free agents, but he’s seriously considering Atlanta’s offer,” the story quotes a source. “He wants to play two more years, and he wants it to be with a contender. He thinks he can help them become a serious one.”
