Best of the Rest or Delonte West?

Chuck - Red's Army July 16, 2009 Uncategorized 7 Comments

The Celtics made a big splash by signing Rasheed Wallace, but haven't done squat since. They unsuccessfully tried to lure Grant Hill to Boston, but he'd rather play for a mediocre team than chase a title.

Aside from money spent to match an offer to Glen Davis, the Celtics have $1.3 million and $1.9 million salary slots available. Their most pressing needs remain a backup wing player and backup point guard.

Here's a look at who is still available at those positions (in no particular order):

  • Ronald "Flip" Murray
  • Stephon Marbury (I'm still holding out hope)
  • Von Wafer
  • Marquis Daniels
  • Fred Jones
  • Keith Bogans
  • Rodney Carney
  • Matt Barnes
  • Joey Graham
  • Brevin Knight
  • Juan Dixon

Underwhelmed? So am I.

Ever since reading the Cavs might be shopping Delonte West, I cannot help but think how much he would help the Celtics.

Yes, I realize it's highly unlikely the Cavs would trade him to one of their top challengers, but since Danny Ainge isn't pulling the trigger on anyone, I'm forced to dream up crazy scenarios.

    What about Jamario Moon? Is he still available?

    I would welcome Delonte West back with open arms!

    Unless there is a sign and trade it may be hard to get some of these guys for what Boston has left in dollars, other than the leftovers. Maybe that is why it seems so agonizingly long

    Maybe nothing will happen until August 23?

    FUCK DELONTE WEST. The guy was trash and an inconsistent shooter with us. We had 2 wake his ugly ass up by sending him to Seattle and then he finally got good with the Cavs, he’ll come back down to earth this year and be his usual 8 ppg self. Way overrated. We needa fucking sign Matt Barnes.

    You are crazy Nick. He played his ass off in Boston…his only problem was he was always hurt.

    The Herald reported the C’s tried to make a sign and trade with the Heat for Moon but the numbers won’t work.
