Danny Ainge told the Boston Herald that the Celtics will not release Delonte West after today’s fight with Von Wafer. The Celtics GM did confirm that an altercation occurred, but said there is no truth to the rumor that West could be cut.
“There was something that happened, and we’re handling it internally,” Ainge said moments ago. “We’re happy with Delonte and Von and how they’ve been playing, and today was unacceptable.”
Needless to say, good news. In other news, Stephane Lasme signed with the Maine Red Claws. The Phoenix Suns had showed interest in the C’s final cut before he signed with Boston’s D-League affiliate.
