Former Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West, out of the NBA since his release in November, has entered the D-League’s player pool, according to sources close to the situation.
Sources told ESPN.com on Wednesday that the Memphis Grizzlies are still weighing whether to sign West to a 10-day contract this week.
But if the Grizzlies pass, West would be eligible to join the team at the front of the D-League waiver line, which sources say is the Donnie Nelson-owned Texas Legends, Frisco-based affiliate of the Mavericks.
Sources say that West hopes to play his way back into the league just like Mike James did earlier this month.
