The Boston Herald is reporting that Delonte West has returned for another stint with the Celtics.

I find no issues with signing West. His character problems are something to slightly worry about, but the Celtics have enough strength on the bench to wave goodbye to any issues should they become a problem.

The contract is non-guaranteed, which is well played by the Celtics. West needs to prove himself as a relevant player in this league, and the Celtics have merely taken advantage of that.

Having another proven guard that is quick with a solid jump shot only bolsters the Celtics' already improved depth at the guard position. For those who have heard Delonte talk before, it doesn't seem like it but he actually has a good basketball IQ.

West will miss the first 10 games this year due to his suspension on gun charges. Once again, character problems.

West has been battling bipolar disorder, which his actions can be greatly attributed to. Bipolar disorder can be treated and controlled, and hopefully West has done exactly that.

The Celtics now have Avery Bradley, Delonte West, Nate Robinson, and Von Wafer at the guard position off the bench. Each player has their own strengths, which can be utilized for the slew of matchups they will encounter.

My last article was written solely on the Celtics bench, and now there is another nice puzzle piece to add onto it.
