NBA career

After just one Summer League game, the Boston Celtics signed the former high school standout to a 2-year partially guaranteed contract, of which $100,000 have been guaranteed. [Marc J. Spears, [http://www.boston.com/sports/basketball/celtics/articles/2007/11/14/reassigned_in_a_flash/ Reassigned in a flash] , "The Boston Globe"] Wallace played small forward for the Celtics, and earned a roster spot on the 2007-08 Celtics roster after competing with Dahntay Jones and Jackie Manuel who were both waived.Marc J.
