Delonte West has returned to the game of basketball. The D-League Texas Legends announced Friday that they have acquired West, who will join the team sometime in the next few days.
The acquisition represents a return of sorts for West, who was on the Dallas Mavericks' roster at the start of the season but was suspended multiple times for locker room clashes after losses. Eventually the Mavericks waived West. Based in Frisco, Texas, the Legends are the Mavericks' D-League affiliate, opening the door to a possible return for West in Mavericks colors. West, 28, has played eight years in the NBA for the Mavericks, Celtics, Cavaliers ,and Supersonics. He was a key part of the LeBron James-era Cavaliers teams and has contributed to a playoff team every year since 2007.
