The names just keep coming. This time it’s Delonte West. Danny Ainge wants to make the Celtics bench the deepest, most talented bench in the league. By the time this offseason is all said and done, he might do just that. (Sam Amico)
Delonte West officially waived by Wolves. Early word is he could end up with Celtics, Bulls or Mavs.
I’d bet my left kidney the Celtics end up with either West or Rudy Fernandez. One or the other. West is a more complete player, but Rudy doesn’t have as many issues. Then they’ll still have Sheed’s contract to play with, but the bench will already be so stacked at every position I don’t even know what they’ll use it for. Probably a small forward in case Marquis shits the bed again and/or Vonilla Wafer and Rudy Fernandez/Delonte West can’t defend bigger small forwards. Either way, no matter what way you look at it, the thought of next season’s bench is making me leap for joy. Only problem with leaping for joy is, I can barely leap over a credit card.
