Your Morning Dump… Where the Delonte rumors are picking up steam

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump

That former Celtic Delonte West, who was recently waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves, was apartment hunting in Waltham. We have no idea why Delonte would be nosing around Celtics country, what with Rajon Rondo and Nate Robinson already in da house. But do stay tuned …

Herald Inside Track

One step up from reporting unsubstantiated rumors is reporting something from the Herald's Inside Track.  But… this is the third time Delonte's been mentioned in town recently.  Is this a case of where there's smoke, there's Delonte blazing up a fatty fire?

Let's just indulge the rumors for a minute, since we don't know for sure if this is really happening.  Signing Delonte means Von Wafer is your emergency small forward when if Marqius goes down. Which means the Celtics will go into the season pretty small on the perimeter.  Which means facing teams that are tall on the perimeter… like…oh, let's pick one at random…. the Miami Heat will be a bit more of a challenge.  

I'll save the analysis for later.  For now, I'll just search You Tube for Delonte's greatest hits and pop a couple of favorites on Page 2.

    This move seems strange to me. Great all the announcers will talk about when we play against Lebron….

  • Lee in Oregon

    I’m assuming Lebron wants to kill anything related to Delonte?
    He’s better than Nate or Von Wafer, but I dont want anything to do with him. Shaq will provide the humor.
    Isnt a small forward they need? How will Delonte help back up Pierce?

  • Delonte West is a better version of Tony Allen. Hope we sign him!

  • DWEST is the man!!!!!!!!!!!

    how can the kfc rap not be on his youtube greatest hits? Aside from Lebron, he hasnt been known to have problems with teammates. him, big baby, and nate would fit great together. Quisy too since they both rap

    um, thanks but no thanks. Basket case extraordinaire, why waste a spot on a guy whos gonna bring a loaded heater on the plane, get caught and jump out of a window, recover then try to make a porn video with ray allens mom.
    Sorry, ok player, just doesnt seem very bright. Rather have Rudy!

    “I don’t do da valet but I do ma-fuckin mickey d’s… any burger you want, WIT CHEESE”

  • I don’t see this making sense. Keep the spot open and see what happens when the season starts.
