If you are a Boston Celtic fan get used to seeing the face above the article you are now reading!

It has been reported that Rasheed Wallace has agreed to join the Boston Celtics in hope of returning to the Promise Land once again.

'Sheed may be getting older, but the guy can still play and will play a valuable role for the Celtics this upcoming season. He averaged 12 points a game last season in what looks like could be his final year as a Detroit Piston.

Wallace also earned $13.68 million playing for the Pistons last season.

Rasheed is looking to get a two year deal from the Celtics, worth about 5.6 million to 5.8 million per year.

Quite the pay cut, huh? It is obvious the man wants another title and wants to be apart of a winning team again and also a winning tradition.

With Chauncey Billups gone, the Pistons lost some of their firepower and Wallace decided he didn't see them going in the direction he wanted to go towards the end of his career (he is 35 years old).

With this addition the Boston Celtics seem to be countering the moves in the Eastern Conference that several teams have already made. 

The Celtics didn't hold anything back to get him in Boston, either.

Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen (aka The Big Three) all went to meet with Wallace. Plus, owner Wyc Grousbeck, coach Doc Rivers, and president Danny Ainge all made a point to meet with the forward as well. 

The signing cannot become official until free agents are allowed to sign on Wednesday, June 8. 

So is Rasheed Wallace the player the Celtics need to get on top of the mountain again? Or will he just be a big, funny Leprechaun in Boston?
