JJ. Reddick?

I would like this.  Not sure how we get him, but under no circumstances to I want Delonte West on this team.  No more locker room disruptions. >:(

Id give a shot at someone else. No disrespect to Delonte.

I already said that Terrence Williams is available, he could be of use as a penetrator and a defender.

Jonny Flynn maybe?

Or that kid from the Summer League that shined bright. I forgot his name though.

Are you talking about Dionte Christmas? I believe he is playing overseas like Moscow or somethin like that

Play Pierce at the 2, and give Jeff Green more minutes at the 3.

Pierce playing defense against guards more often will probably lead to more moments such as this:



At least the shot didn't go in.

I love how Nelson doesnt even come close on that shot. Usually when a player causes another one to fall down like that they're so jacked up that they finish the play, Nelson wasn't even close.

I'm a Delonte, fan he plays hard, can knock down shots, defend and attack the hoop.

I think he is difficult to deal with off the court which is probably why he won't be brought in.

Exactly. If it was just his talent we were speaking of, he would be perfect tor this team

Delonte is the best option.

He's an instant fit chemistry wise, having played with Jeff Green in Seattle, Jason Terry in Dallas and of course playing here twice. The Celtics players know Delonte's game and he knows our system.

As long as Pierce and KG are on this roster we are in win now mode. We need a proven playoff performer and I throw up in my mouth at the thought of Derek Fisher in a Celtics uniform.

DWest can play both guards positions, has playoff experience, shoots the 3 well, good defender and he helps on the glass.

Bring Back REDZ!

Delonte would be perfect: an injury-prone player on an injury-prone team. Sign him up!

Maybe it would work like a reverse jinx.  Delonte would probably finish the rest of the season completely healthy.

What other real options are there?

He knows the system. Has run it on two seperate occasions.

He played with kg.
He played with pierce.
He played with green.
He played with jet in Dallas.

He's the most talented player out there by far at the guard position.

Delonte was playing good ball his last time with the Cs before breaking his wrist.  I think this team needs a little crazy, but I don't think the coaches, front office, and ownership feels the same way.

You'd have to be crazy to want this! JK

He is fragile and has stability issues, I think we are done with him.  There are reasons he is not on an NBA team but it might be worth it to rile up LeBron.

I think there will be several guards available once the trade deadline passes and buyouts start happening. No need to panic right now.

Maybe it is in Delonte West's best interests to be away from the NBA for a while, whether he realizes it or not.

Also, keep in mind that he agreed to go to the D-League and put his name into the pool of players that teams can draw from, but then refused to report once he heard that the Mavericks have no intention of bringing him back this season if he plays well.  I'd rather deal with Royce White's mental illness than Delonte West's.
