Delonte West isn't a consideration.about 1 hour ago via webReplyRetweetFavorite@WojYahooNBAAdrian WojnarowskiIt also becomes more and more likely the Celtics will look for a ball handler in any trade heading towards the deadline, as the Celtics continue to look for point guard and big man as we get closer to February 21.Follow Jesse on Twitter: @J_duderanch
