The Mavericks plan to waive backup guard Delonte West in order to free up a roster spot and put in a waiver claim on center Eddy Curry, a source told Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News.

The team indefinitely suspended West for "conduct detrimental to the team" Thursday morning. He was previously suspended on Oct. 16 following a locker room outburst on Oct. 16.

West's Twitter account claimed the latest incident was "no bi-polar trip."

The Mavericks can wait until the Monday 15-man roster deadline to waive West and possibly add Curry, who was waived by the Spurs on Tuesday.
