Mavs suspend Delonte West indefinitely for 'detrimental' conduct again

The Mavs suspended guard Delonte West for the second time in 10 days, according to a report from the Dallas Morning News:

"We have suspended Delonte for conduct detrimental to the team,” President of Basketball Operations Donnie Nelson said. “The suspension is effective immediately and no other statements will be issued."

West was also suspended for "conduct detrimental to the team" on Oct. 16, supposedly in part because of a locker room outburst after the team's 123-104 preseason win over the Rockets. After that incident, West tweeted: "Sorry moma…" and "I showed off on your birthday again…" (The tweets were later deleted.) The suspension lasted less than a day and West was back in the lineup the next day against the Suns.

West, who signed with Dallas as a free agent last December, has a history of disciplinary incidents and has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The disorder played a role in West's arrest on weapons charges in Sept. 2009: West was pulled over while driving a three-wheel motorcycle in Maryland and sentenced to house arrest and later suspended by the NBA for 10 games.

After the announcement of his most recent suspension, West tweeted:

West, 29, averaged 9.6 points, 3.2 assists and 1.3 steals per game with the Mavs last season.
