Report: Wafer ‘so happy’ to play for Celtics

When Doc Rivers [1] delivered a straightforward message, Von Wafer [2] was happy to oblige.

‘€œI just hope to help the team,’€ Wafer told SLAM [3]. ‘€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 [4] 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.
