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.I'd be all for the return of Delonte to Boston. He has legitimate 6 or 7 man skills. Yes he has his issues, but when you're talking vet minimum you're not going to get a player of his caliber if he doesn't have some baggage.
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'm guessing Pierce would approve of Delonte's return. JR 7/27/2010 05:19:00 PM Tweet
