Boston Celtics Free Agency 2011: C's Are Finalists For Delonte West

Free agent guard Delonte West has narrowed down his list to four teams, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski: the Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics.

West, 28, averaged 5.6 points and 2.7 assists per game last season for the Celtics. Due to injuries and suspension, West played in only 24 regular season games, but emerged in the playoffs as the reliable two-way combo guard Boston expected all season.

According to a report last week, the Celtics did not call West on the first night of free agency, though they did speak to his representatives. The Lakers reportedly have serious interest in West, and West has previously stated that he would not mind being reunited with LA coach Mike Brown, who coached West in Cleveland.

The Celtics were one of few teams willing to risk signing West last summer after he experienced legal issues and struggled with bi-polar disorder, and they signed him to the league minimum salary. But West has stated that he does not consider himself a minimum salary player, and is expected to command more money this season after causing very few problems in Boston last year.
