The Celtics have announced they have agreed to terms with free agent guard Deltone West have agreed to a contract. Terms of the deal are not yet known.

 

The 24th overall pick of the 2004 draft, West played three seasons for the Celtics before being shipped to Seattle as part of the Ray Allen deal. West spent half of the 2007-08 season with Seattle before being traded to the Cavaliers, where he spent two and a half seasons. He was dealt to the Timberwolves for a draft pick in July and was waived by the club a week later.

According to a press release issued by USA Basketball, Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has withdrawn his name from consideration for the final spot on Team USA, who will begin their participation in the World Championships Saturday night in Istanbul.
