Delonte West’s day in court & other Celtics news

Considering Delonte West [1]‘s history with law enforcement, the news that the Celtics [2]¬†free-agent guard¬†appeared in court on Tuesday morning could have been a lot worse, but he simply had a motor vehicle summons dismissed.

West and his attorneys appeared in a Stamford, Conn. courtroom as a result of what they called “a paperwork mix-up with his car registration” when state police stopped him in his Range Rover at a rest stop on I-95 at 11:30 p.m. on May 12 — the day after the C’s Game 5 loss to Miami in the Eastern Conference semifinals — according to the Stamford Advocate [3].

“There’s nothing to this,” West’s lawyer, Matthew Adams, told the paper.

That’s good news, since the last time West ran into the police (September 2009) he was hit with a couple gun possession charges [4] while on his motorcycle near his Maryland home. That eventually resulted in a 10-game suspension when he returned to the Celtics this past season. West remained under house arrest for much of the 2010-11 season until he was released in March.

A couple other Celtics items of note on a Tuesday afternoon …

Both Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo [5] and free-agent forward Glen Davis [6] appeared at Red Bull’s promotional “Boston’s Got Wings” project that will include the restoration of Roxbury’s Malcolm X Park.

The Globe’s Gary Washburn reported via Twitter [7] that Davis “will ‘definitely’ consider overseas offers and wants to return to the Celtics.” The unrestricted free agent could sign abroad with or without an opt-out clause.

Additionally, ESPN.com’s Chris Forsberg posted the following items via Twitter [8]: 1) Rondo’s elbow is “getting better,” and 2) Celtics players may organize workouts together “if lockout lingers.” Meanwhile, the Herald noted that Rondo has enrolled [9] at the University of Kentucky this summer and has completed 60 percent of his degree. Reports last week indicated he will also enroll this fall and act as a student assistant coach for the Wildcats.
