Rasheed Wallace’s tax payment fails in Oregon

rasheed_wallace-practiceFormer NBA star Rasheed Wallace attempted to make a $35,000 payment on a property tax bill on a house he owns in Portland, Ore., but when the county tried to collect the money it was told the account is not valid, AP reported.

His wife submitted the electronic payment last week that bounced.

Dave Austin with Multnomah County told KGW as a result, a $25 returned check fee will be added to the $150,000 bill.

Wallace holds career averages of 14.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1 steal during a 14-year career with the Bullets, Blazers, Hawks, Pistons, Celtics and Knicks. He played in total of 1109 NBA games (started 956).

The Pistons and 38-year old Wallace, had been in discussions last June about a player development role with the franchise he helped lead to an NBA championship in 2004.

Wallace eventually agreed to a two-year deal to join the Detroit Pistons‘ coaching staff, ESPN reported in July. Wallace is now an assistant coach with the Pistons.
