Wallace Considering Retirement

By  | 

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - Cleveland center Ben Wallace is considering retirement following the Cavaliers' elimination from the playoffs.

Wallace, a four-time NBA defensive player of the year, said Sunday that a combination of injuries, declining production and a loss of passion for the game has him thinking about quitting. He plans to sit down with his family before deciding his next move.

The 14-year veteran suffered a broken leg this season and suffered from tendinitis in his knees. Wallace has one season left on a contract worth $14 million, but says the money will not be a factor on whether he decides to play another year.

Wallace won an NBA title in 2004 with Detroit.
