Wallace, who agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with Chicago, helped Detroit advance to four straight conference
finals -- the first team to do so since the Bulls of the early
Mohammed started 30 games last season for the Spurs,
averaging 6.2 points and 5.2 rebounds. The 6-foot-10, 250-pound
center most likely will replace Wallace in the starting lineup,
allowing Rasheed Wallace to remain a power forward.
Mohammed, who turns 29 on Sept. 5, probably will not be able to
rebound, block shots and provide energy as Ben Wallace did -- but he
will cost about $9 million less next season.
