Report: David West Sign-and-Trade to Celtics Dead, Hornets Forward Headed to Pacers


Just two days after it looked like Hornets foward David West would become a Celtic, a report says the deal is off.

On Friday, it was reported that the Celtics would send forward Jermaine O’Neal to the Hornets for West and sign him to a three-year deal. But on Sunday, the deal is now “dead” and the Indiana Pacers are now the front-runners to sign West, according to TNT’s David Aldridge.

“Source: Sign/trade between Boston, NO for David West is dead, confirms report that Pacers closing in on signing West,” Aldridge tweeted Sunday afternoon.


Just 20 minutes later Aldridge tweeted that West and the Pacers had come to terms on a deal.

”Agent Lance Young confirms David West agrees with Indiana on two-year, $20 million deal: ‘David is ready to help them win a championship,'” the tweet read.
