Delonte West played for the Mavericks for two seasons, and the team’s owner clearly hasn’t forgotten about the former guard’s tenure there.
West was more of an able body than a difference-maker on the Mavs, as playing for Dallas from 2011-12 marked his final seasons in the NBA. He then went on to play in China, and later concluded his career in the G League, as a member of the Texas Legends.
But West has battled mental health issues during life after basketball, being seen walking around homeless multiple times. Most recently, he was spotted holding a sign pleading for money in the Dallas area, and he apparently ran into Mavericks owner Mark Cuban a few days later.
Cuban encountered West at a gas station, and he actually picked the former NBA player up in his car, in hopes of taking him to rehab.
Apparently, West did indeed check into a rehab facility in Florida.
Hopefully West gets the help he needs.
