Punches Reportedly Thrown In Locker Room: More Details Emerge From Delonte West-Von Wafer Fight

More details have emerged surrounding the alleged fight between Delonte West and Von Wafer, as first reported by Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy. 

Apparently, according to Kennedy, things began during a three-on-three game with Avery Bradley, Luke Harangody, Semih Erden and assistant coach Tyronn Lue, when West began fouling Wafer. Wafer got agitated to the point that he left the game, retreating to the locker room while West shouted obscenities at him. West eventually followed him to the locker room. 

After Wafer had showered and sat down at his locker, West approached from behind and threw a punch. Wafer didn't see the punch coming but quickly got off of the ground and connected on two punches of his own. He then wrestled West to the ground before being separated by the team's veterans. 

Kennedy goes on to report that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce "were very unhappy," and that although Doc Rivers "tried to smooth things over," the Celtics, and GM Danny Ainge, are considering relseasing West.
