How desperate are the Celtics for help on the wing? This should answer your question:
The Celtics have been seeking a tough-minded defender to replace Tony
Allen, now that he signed with the Memphis Grizzlies. And according to a
source, their interest could spread to former Celtic Delonte West, who
is expected to be waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves after the club
acquired him in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers Monday.
West, whose full contract is not guaranteed if waived by Aug. 5,
could be the moderately priced defender the Celtics seek, but of course,
he would come with a plethora of issues. West pleaded guilty to weapons
charges in a strange case where he was caught carrying three guns while
on a motorcycle in his native Maryland last year. He received eight
months of home detention but the judge ruled he would be allowed to
travel with his NBA team.
I love Delonte's game. Unfortunately, you get more than his game. I'm not sure this dude is mentally stable.
