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.Kennedy also quotes sources saying that Boston Celtics management and director of basketball operations Danny Ainge will weigh their options with regard to West, who is signed to a non-guaranteed contract. More details as they emerge.
Update: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports on Twitter that "Delonte West has been livid with Von Wafer for days" prior to Friday's reported altercation and that "West believed Wafer was responsible for published anonymous quote saying it was 'obvious' when West hadn't taken his medicine, source says."
Update 2: WEEI says West might be released after the fight. Also, Wafer updated his Twitter to say, "i love my team #wefamily." Update 3: Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports on Twitter that Boston is "not expected to release West, sources say." Update 4: The Boston Herald quotes Ainge confirming that an altercation took place and calling the incident "unacceptable." The paper also notes that Ainge "denied there would be any repercussions," such as releasing West, a possibility that had been floated earlier today.
