Gerald Wallace walked into Avery Johnson's office at PNY Center Tuesday to deliver a message: he's willing to help the coach as he and his staff try to groom the younger players the rest of the way. As he told Colin Stephenson, "It was just understanding — trying to help the young guys understand where we are as a team and what we’ve got to do to get better'."
Johnson said,. "It was just a breath of fresh air when he came into my office this morning. So he’s been great.’’ Wallace remained non-committal about his players option come July.
"I’ll sit down and talk to my family, concentrate and see where I’m at in my career and what I plan on doing for my future and we’ll go from there,’’ he said.
