The Celtics are close to a deal that would bring free-agent forward David West to Boston, according to a report from NBA.com's David Aldridge.

West is a two-time All-Star who has averaged 16.4 points and 7.3 rebounds per game since being drafted by the New Orleans Hornets in 2003. The big power forward had a strong start in 2011, but had his season cut short after tearing his ACL in March. He had successful reconstructive surgery in April.

The Celtics were working to land West, 31, through a sign-and-trade deal that could mean the end of Jermaine O’Neal's tenure with the team, according to reports.

We'll have more on this as details become available. Stay tuned.
