Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy has the scoop on an alleged lockerroom fight between Delonte West and Von Wafer:
After another intense three-on-three game in practice today, Delonte West and Von Wafer got into a fist fight in the locker room.
Punches were thrown and the players had to be separated. The Celtics are considering releasing West, who is on a non-guaranteed contract.
Sources say that Wafer tried to walk away but West followed him into the locker room and threw the first punch. Doc and vets aren't happy.
We're going to hold judgement until all the facts come out. But clearly, this is disappointing news regarding Delonte West.
UPDATE: Von Wafer sent out the following tweet:
Today was a test!…I am a professional and will continue to conduct myself as one…God has a plan for me
UPDATE 2: Kennedy has more details
After Wafer had showered and sat down at his locker, West approached from behind and threw a punch. Wafer didn't see the punch coming but quickly got off of the ground and connected on two punches of his own. He then wrestled West to the ground before being separated by the team's veterans.
[…]West has gotten into skirmishes with multiple teammates this season and his confrontational ways have grown old very quickly in the locker room. He is currently serving a ten-game suspension after pleading guilty to weapons charges in July.
Multiple teammates? What haven't we heard?
West believed Wafer was responsible for published anonymous quote saying it was "obvious" when West hadn't taken his medicine, source says.
Woj said Delonte was angry at Von for days and this was the culmination… West attacking Wafer in the locker room. A story had come out a few days ago where an unnamed player made the quote referenced in Woj's tweet.
