``There's still some paperwork issues to work out before we can get everything signed, but we're happy,'' Bickerstaff told The Associated Press. ``It's been a collaborative effort on both sides.''
Wallace, who turns 27 later this month, led the Bobcats with 18.1 points per game last season. He also averaged 7.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.0 steals in 72 games.
Wallace became an unrestricted free agent last month, and the Bobcats faced heavy competition in their efforts to re-sign the forward. But Bobcats part-owner Michael Jordan had said keeping Wallace was one of the team's top offseason priorities.
Bickerstaff declined to disclose any details of Wallace's contract. Wallace's agent, Rob Pelinka, said late last season that he and his client were seeking a six-year deal. Pelinka did not immediately return a call Wednesday evening seeking comment.
