Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told the media that there's still a chance Delonte West could return to the team.

“No decisions have been made one way or another; otherwise we would have made it,” Cuban said, adding, “It’s just a process that’s pretty much down to me making a decision.”

The Mavericks reportedly were ready to waive West, who has been suspended twice in the last two weeks for conduct detrimental to the team.

Cuban said he believes in giving second-chances, pointing out, “Do you not remember last year?” Obviously referring to Lamar Odom, Cuban added, “Let’s just say we won’t give as many chances as we gave people last year.”

Mavericks management reportedly was concerned about West's influence on the young players on the roster, the source told ESPN Dallas.

There was a strong feeling that West could not contain his frustration over being signed to a one-year, veteran-minimum contract for the second consecutive season and being part of a logjam among reserve guards.
