Waiver Wire Pickup – Delonte West

Luke Ridnour strained his left quadricep last night against the Magic.  Word is that he could be out for an extended period of time.  The man to step up… Delonte West.  I’ve actually been waiting all year for him to take the starting job away from the other two, Watson and Ridnour.  I just didn’t think it would take an injury. 


Delonte is deceptively good.  He has a knack for doing something in most categories.  Last year with a young Boston team he averaged 12.2 points, 3.1 boards, 4.4 assists, and 1 steal a game.  I would expect about the same, maybe a little more from Delonte, if he gets the full-time gig in Seattle and plays at least 32 minutes.  In fact, last night he played 32 minutes and he had 6 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals.  The scoring was down because he had a horrible night shooting, just 2 of 11. 

 If he’s out there, go get him.
