I would love for the Heat to get him, but at this point after all that's happened with him and Lebron in the press I think we'd be more likely to round our team out with Dwight at C and Paul at PG...

funny how when he was in Cleveland LA fans called him a midget - crazy - psycho, but now that he's rumored to go to LA he's a "great addition" :lol :ohwell:

good luck to Delonte, and his new team though.

Somebody is going to get a steal here. 6'3 Combo Guard who can play some PG, can spot up and knock down 3's, and is a good defender.

Where does he fit?

He fits anywhere really.

I'd love to see him back in Boston in a 6th man role backing up Rondo and Ray Ray.

Not sure which Laker fans you're referring to, care to point them out? Even so, he can be crazy and a worthwhile addition. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Boston already picked up Wafer to do that.

he's a good fit for any team imo. he's shown that he can run in a running system, and even play in a halfcourt offense.

the triangle might be best for him though. he CAN play PG, but i dont think he's a set-up man [like Chris Paul or Deron Williams].

Don't mind him, he's had a hard on for Laker fans for awhile now

I know hes a good fit on a lot of teams. Im just talking about in terms of playing time/role/money.

The Knicks could use him if we weren't trying to get Shannon Brown.

He fits wherever some team is willing to put with his mental problems.

Talent-wise, he's perfect for championship contenders Hawks, Spurs, Celtics, Mavs, Lakers.

He'd really fit in well in LA, bet they wish they could un-sign Steve Blake now.
