Report: Delonte West, Von Wafer in Fist-Fight (UPDATE)
UPDATE: Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated tweeted Friday afternoon that the Celtics are leaning towards keeping West despite the altercation earlier today.
Delonte West’s time in Boston may be short. West is already serving a 10-game suspension because of weapons charges, and on Friday his situation got worse. Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD reports that West and teammate Von Wafer got into a fight today after practice: “After another intense three-on-three game in practice today, Delonte West and Von Wafer got into a fist fight in the locker room. Punches were thrown and the players had to be separated. The Celtics are considering releasing West, who is on a non-guaranteed contract. Sources say that Wafer tried to walk away but West followed him into the locker room and threw the first punch. Doc and vets aren’t happy.”
