Exactly four months following that Twitter rant, it looks like Wafer will get that one last opportunity for the NBA. That opportunity will come in the D-League with the Delaware 87ers, as the team announced on Friday afternoon that they claimed the NBA veteran off the waiver wire. The addition of Wafer is a necessary move for the 87ers as the team only had three players in their backcourt rotation: Cat Barber, Dionte Christmas and Brandon Triche.

Von Wafer: I pray for another opportunity man. It may never come. Take that as a lesson make the most of everything u are given. Nothing is promised. Please kids don’t be like me. Wasted so much God givin talented over the years but that’s cool we moving forward and doing it Rt now. Do not stress about what you can’t control. That energy you are wasting on that could have gone towards an even bigger blessing. I’m not ashamed to get on social media and beg for an opportunity back in the nba. I don’t care about nothing just give me an opportunity
Wafer was forced into this very public statement after Shanxi’s 106-98 road loss to Qingdao in the CBA playoff quarter-finals. The result ensured that the Dragons were eliminated from the postseason without winning a game. However, it was Wafer’s actions during the third and final game of the series that have captured the headlines. With Shanxi staring at elimination, the guard was ejected for hard fouling Qingdao point guard Luo Xudong. Then, as he was sent from the court, Wafer picked up a chair and threw it against a wall before exiting through the player’s tunnel.
In the aftermath of the series, several players were fined for their actions but Wafer has taken the brunt of the punishment following his foul on Luo and then the throwing of the chair afterwards. Not only was he fined 50,000 RMB (roughly $8,000), he has also been given a six-game ban from all CBA games. It is the ban that presents the biggest problem for the American. Given that the CBA regular season is so short, the absence of a star overseas player like Wafer for that many games is a huge disadvantage.
