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.
