    Memphis finalizes addition of former Detroit Piston Rasheed Wallace to Penny Hardaway’s staff

    Memphis, Tenn. — Memphis coach Penny Hardaway has added 16-year NBA veteran Rasheed Wallace as an assistant coach on a staff that also features former NBA coach Larry Brown.

    The Tigers announced the hiring Thursday with the move finally official.

    “I’m excited about adding Rasheed to the program,” Hardaway said in a statement. “He is someone our ‘bigs,’ and our entire team, will learn a tremendous amount from. All of his experience in the NBA and knowledge of the game will be key to our success.”

    The announcement comes a day after five-star Emoni Bates announced his commitment to Memphis for the upcoming season. The 6-foot-8 guard has been called a generational talent and is projected as the No. 1 overall pick when he becomes eligible for the NBA draft after he turns 19 in 2023.

    His decision bumped Memphis up to the No. 1 overall recruiting class in 247Sports’ composite rankings, Hardaway’s second top overall recruiting class going into his fourth season at his alma mater.
