Delonte West Reportedly Has Signed Deal With Celtics

Delonte West, a former Celtics guard, is now a current Celtics guard.

According to multiple reports, Boston has brought back West, the guard that spent the first three years of his NBA career with the Celtics (2004-07). West, a free agent, has reportedly agreed to a non-guaranteed contract.

West was drafted by Boston with the 24th overall pick in 2004. He was traded to Seattle after the 06-07 season as part of the Ray Allen deal and spent the past two-and-a-half seasons with the Cavaliers.

CelticsBlog is already saying that it's "great to have [him] back."

An important caveat regarding the acquisition of West, as Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix reminds, is that the guard has to sit out the first 10 games of the 2010-11 NBA season after he pleaded guilty to a weapons charge in August. Otherwise, Mannix says it's a "good signing" for the Celtics: "West knows the system, adds depth to the backcourt and has playoff experience. Little downside."
