When Doc Rivers delivered a straightforward message, Von Wafer was happy to oblige.

‘€œI just hope to help the team,’€ Wafer told SLAM. ‘€œI’€™m all about the team first. I want to do anything I can to help make this a better team. Coach Rivers said, ‘€˜If you’€™re not going to be a team player I don’€™t want you here.’€™ So I’€™m just gonna do my best to help make us a stronger group.’€

Wafer, a 25-year-old guard, confirmed to SLAM that he has agreed to play for the Celtics next season. He spent time playing overseas last season. Now he is embracing the opportunity to return to the NBA ‘€¦ and a contender.

‘€œI wasn’€™t always sure I’€™d be back,’€ says Wafer. ‘€œIt’€™s unbelievable. I’€™m just so happy to be back. I’€™m just so happy.’€

Wafer was drafted by the Lakers in 2005. He most recently averaged 12.4 points in 19.4 minutes for the Rockets during the 2008-09 season.
