"No consideration to coming back. This is definitely my last year."
Wallace is set to break Avery Johnson's record for the most games played by an undrafted player since the ABA-NBA merger. Tuesday will be Wallace's 1,055th game.
For Wallace, this is the 16th season of a career that began in Washington in 1996. He played for the Wizards through the 98-99 season and then played one year in Orlando before joining the Pistons and becoming one of the NBA's most recognizable - and unlikely - stars.
He is a four-time NBA All-Star (2003 through 2006) and four-time NBA defensive player of the year (2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006). He has thrice been named All-NBA Second Team (2003, 2004 and 2006).
Wallace averaged a career-best 15.4 rebounds during the 2002-03 season.
After the 2006 season he went to Chicago for two seasons, Cleveland for two seasons and then wound up back in Detroit in 2009-10. This season he is averaging 1.0 point and 3.4 boards per game.
