Rumor: Sheed wants $8 million or else

I have no clue who J. Gamble is, let alone how credible his unnamed sources are, but what the hell, it's the offseason and rumors are fun. From SLAM:

SLAM contributor J. Gamble [making his debut with us next issue] hears from a close personal friend of Rasheed Wallace’s that unless Sheed gets $8 million to play next year, he’s going to retire. If that’s true, we’ve probably seen the last of Sheed in the NBA.

Without trying to figure out what's actually possible under the cap, I've long thought that Rasheed Wallace might like to finish his career in Orlando, next to a legitimate banger in Dwight Howard who does the heavy lifting rebounding and under a coach in Stan Van Gundy who encourages everyone not named Dwight to hang out by the three-point line. In any case, an $8 million price tag, if true, should confirm what everyone has already suspected: he's done in Detroit.
