Source: Celtics interested in Delonte West


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.

    Having a guy who banged lebron’s Mom on the Celtics isn’t going to be a bad thing.
    I like his game, provided he’s just a bench guy.

  • thetitleisours

    I would rather have someone who could light it up like Von Wafer. Not sure we need locker-room distractions

  • thetitleisours

    Of course, Von Wafer comes with a little baggage too so who knows?

  • finn

    Like Delonte & Wafer. Hope they sign one of them & send Sheed’s contract (possibly with Daniels if needbe) for somebody of value. Wishful thinking but DA may just surprise everyone

  • CelticinSF

    we want delonte west. can shoot, defend, funny dude, and knows the organization. good fit. Lets do it. Just keep him and Nate from distracting eachother.

  • I was right about the Blockbuster Trade Baby!

    I like it.

  • come on chuck you could of thrown up either the wire hanger video or one of my top ten photo shop ever Delonte Clutch on the delmonte can!!!!!! either way this makes me want to drink

  • gustusias

    that would be great! he can play the point and the two guard. Marquis Daniels is our only bech wing player. Every season he plays he is hurt long term. Forget the off court issues, sign Delonte. LET’S GET THE BAND BACK TOGETHER. SAL AS WELL.

  • Bas Rutten Jr.

    Viva Delonte!!

  • Done.

  • JD

    Delonte West’s leisure activities entale riding on a motorcycle with a guitar case strapped to his back holding a shot gun.
    Badass but….

  • thanks chuck

  • nick

    are u guys all smoking crack tonight to want to sign D-West?? I mean he’s a decent player, but 4 me…WTF do you do with Rondo, Nate, Avery Bradley and then either Hose or West?? Lets not 4 get that this gy is only 6’4 i want a 6’6 or up guy to help protect the wing, lets fuckin go here ainge, get the big Shamrock while ur at it

    I’m with ya again Nick, gonna say no to Delonte. It’s not so much that he drives around wasted ordering fried chicken and crispy cremes, it’s not even that he’s packing 3 loaded guns on a very strange motorcycle…….the dude has some serious mental issues and when he goes off his meds, it gets weird….they have to coax him onto airplanes, he misses camp seemingly every year, stuff like that. His game isnt good enough to put up with all that.
    Sign the damn fat man!

  • Don’t forget banging LeBron’s mom

  • Lee in Oregon

    oh yeah, I almost forgot……Ray Allen’s mom is better lookin than LeBron’s mom. He already destroyed the entire city of Cleveland, we dont need him wrecking the room in Boston.

  • I’m not too thrilled with this myself. It’s 4am and I’m on the 2nd leg of a double-shift, so I can’t think offhand who else is out there. Delonte is quick and can score in bunches, but I’d rather someone in the 6’6″ or 6’7″ range who’s a bit bulkier.

  • Lee in Oregon

    Pargo just signed with the Warriors

  • Yes-read that myself. Well, we'll have to see what happens I guess….

  • Luke Walton

    Funny that the preceding article is about the Celtics looking for a shooter.
    Get it?

  • CoachBo

    The bat didn’t fall far from the shit with D. West.
    But if he’s cheap, and the 2007 Reunion Crowd will stop for awhile with “Bring back (insert the name of ex-Celtic scrub here)” threads, why not?
    We can always cut his ass.

  • Joseph 17-16 (it’s just a matter of time)

    LOL, Delonte West!! Man, are you guys desperate. You guys can have Delonte and that wierd herpes-like thing around his mouth. HAHAHAHA.
