Report: Delonte West, Von Wafer scuffle during Celtics' walkthrough

Boston may not be big enough for both Delonte West and Von Wafer.

The two Celtics got into an altercation during a walk-through and had to be separated by teammates this afternoon, according to a Hoopsworld report.

During a three-on-three game with Avery Bradley, Luke Harangody, Semih Erden and assistant coach Tyronn Lue, West began fouling Wafer each time the reserve guard touched the ball. West was increasingly physical to the point that Wafer exited to the locker room midway through the game. As he walked away, West barked obscenities and taunted Wafer.
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.
Sources close to the situation say that the Danny Ainge and the Celtics have grown tired of West's confrontations with teammates and are considering releasing the point guard. West is on a non-guaranteed contract and his distractions could result in that deal being terminated.

West still must serve eight games of the 10-game suspension he received in connection with a guilty plea to a weapons charge this summer.

Dribble of a flock of sheep story. GM Danny Ainge and others have said what is written here is a lie. But it's the way this writer like the rest of the flock wants Delonte West perceived
