Former Brooklyn Nets forward Gerald Wallace said at Nets shootaround that he doesn’t care about last season, but made it clear that he’s still harboring some feelings about signing a four-year extension and then being traded within a year to a team that couldn’t be more obviously tanking, according to the New York Daily News.
“(The Nets) have to point the finger at somebody like I was the guy to take the blame,” Wallace told the Daily News before Brooklyn’s 82-80 victory. “And that was the reason I was traded.”
Wallace goes on to say that he was upset that the Nets didn’t bother to call him before trading him — they couldn’t even let him know it was a possibility.
Wallace, now a member of the Boston Celtics, simply said: “after 13 years in the league, you need to move on.”
