I'm not a fan of bringing in West, but if the Celtics were considering it, I would suggest that he be asked to sign a ten-day contract first so he can be evaluated and if he in any way hesitates or refuses, then take at as a sign that he will be disruptive instead of buying into the team concept and move on and don't waste any more time on him.

Yup. That's going to fly very well with someone who refused to play for the Dallas minor league affiliate after learning that he won't be resigned.

All in all, do you not wonder why we didn't bring him back when we could? Or why he was suspended twice and ultimately cut for "conduct detrimental to the team"?

Delonte wouldn't cost anything and he can probably run the offense a little more effectively than Bradley at this point.  i.e. against decent defense you stand a better of chance of PP and KG getting the ball in their spots with Delonte vs anyone else including Dooling.

Anyone else you're bringing in off the street with no idea whether he can mesh with what's already here. 

And mid season guard acquisitions have rarely worked here in the KG in era.

Yeah, we can't really avoid this anymore. There are simply no other quality guards out there, and we need another guard real bad.

Also another big, but that's been the case all season.

I proposed that idea in the hopes that Delonte West would say no and the team would move on to someone else.

other than fighting Von wafer I cant think of any trouble that Delonte caused on the C's that year

before Dallas let him go he was averagine

9.6PPG and 3.2APG on 46% shooting...thats pretty solid numbers if you can handle him for the rest of the season

The Celtics are not considering signing free agent PG Delonte West.
The Celtics are looking for a stopgap point guard option like Shelvin Mack to replace Leandro Barbosa (knee) and Rajon Rondo (knee), but they don't want to deal with West. He's been out of the league since last season and recently declined an invite to rehab his game/image in the D-League

Celtics knows West more than any of us. So if they dont want him, then they know he isnt worth the trouble.
