Contrary to Herald Report, David West Deal Is Not Dead

Earlier this evening, the Boston Herald reported that the David West to Boston deal was dead, which caused a storm of chaos among Celtics fans.

Don't worry, Celtics Nation. A more reliable source, Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, more recently reported that the deal was still good and is in the process of being finalized:
Free-agent forward David West is nearing an agreement to join the Boston Celtics on a three-year deal that will pay him between $27 million and $29 million, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The Celtics are working to complete a sign-and-trade deal with the New Orleans Hornets, and are expected to include center Jermaine O’Neal and guard Sasha Pavlovic. The Hornets are believed to have a third team willing to take O’Neal, the veteran center.
The move would leave the Celtics without a true center, and West would likely play most of his minutes at power forward.
We will see how this all plays out in the coming hours, but for now, we still have hope that David West will be wearing Celtics green.
