Report: C’s waive Oliver Lafayette
Posted By Paul Flannery On September 25, 2010 @ 1:59 pm In General | 1 Comment
Lafayette was a longshot to make the roster with Rajon Rondo , Nate Robinson  and possibly rookie Avery Bradley  slotted ahead of him, but no doubt he would have liked the opportunity to compete.
Lafayette played well during the Orlando summer league and looks like a player who can stick on an NBA roster in the right circumstances. He also performed well with Fort Wayne in the D-League, averaging over 17 points and six assists per game.
The move leaves the Celtics with 16 players on their training camp, and it seems likely they will add a few more. Competition for roster spots will be fierce, however, because the C’s have 13 players on guaranteed contracts.
That leaves Delonte West , Von Wafer  and Tony Gaffney fighting for two spots. Danny Ainge spoke enthusiastically about West before the team’s annual charitable golf outing. West is facing a 10-game suspension to start the season, so it’s possible that Wafer, or another veteran, could serve as insurance until he is able to return.
