2011 Celtics Free Agent Report: Delonte West

Celtics Guard Delonte West (www.espn.go.com)

Delonte West missed most of the regular season with a wrist injury, but when the playoffs came around West was a key player off the bench.

In the playoffs, West averaged 19 minutes a game, scoring 6.6 points and shooting 47% from the field. The Celtics have to re-sign Delonte West for a couple reasons. The first is they need someone to back up Rajon Rondo. The second reason being when West and Rondo are on the floor together, it gives the Celtics two ball handlers and takes pressure off of Rondo.

The key to this deal is not overpaying for West. He is a solid player, but he is a role player. Back up point guards are a dime a dozen. Danny Ainge realizes this as well. Look for the Celtics to offer Delonte an offer around three years for $9 million. If that is the offer, it is a good deal for all parties, so expect to see Delonte back in a Celtics uniform next season.

Probability of return: 90%
