His agent Bill Strickland told The Post this morning he has not begun formal contract negotiations with the Knicks and wouldn't confirm the decision was made.
Wallace would make the veteran's minimum of 1.7 million. Strickland said if Wallace plays it would only be with the Knicks because of his relationship with coach Mike Woodson, who was a Pistons assistant when Detroit won the title with Wallace as one of its stars.
The Knicks looked at it as a no-risk move. Wallace is a stout defender, who can hit the 3-pointer. Tyson Chandler told The Post on Wednesday that Wallace "looked good in workouts and could be a big help."
The Post reported Tuesday the Knicks wanted to sign Wallace, but it was up to him whether he could dedicate himself to getting into NBA shape.
