Jermaine O’Neal’s Future Up in the Air Amid Rumors That Celtics Are Close to Signing David West


The Celtics are reportedly close to signing two-time All-Star David West. And while the move should do a lot to improve the C's, it also leaves Jermaine O'Neal's future in Boston in doubt.

O'Neal was slated to be the team's starting center this season, but acquiring West would likely mean Kevin Garnett will move to center while West plays power forward. It's believed that O'Neal could be part of a sign-and-trade deal with the Hornets in order to obtain West.

O'Neal spoke about his future on Saturday, saying that even if he doesn't play with the C's this season, he intends to play for a contender. His coach, Doc Rivers, talked about what it's like trying to bring in the best players possible this time of year.
