Well Delonte West didn’t get the response he wanted from Mark Cuban, so he changed his mind about the Texas Legends.  After hearing that Mark Cuban had no interest in him returning to the Mavericks, West has changed his mind on the D-League according to Pro Basketball Talk via NBA.com. According to a source with knowledge of West’s thinking, the troubled combo guard has decided not to play in the D-League against the advisement of his representation. West is represented by agent Dan Fegan. The source said that NBA teams have been reluctant to bring in West, even on a 10-day contract, until he gets back on the court and they see him play. The Memphis Grizzlies recently kicked around the idea of offering West a 10-day contract, but no offer materialized…. West reportedly wanted to join the Legends with hopes that he could show the Mavs he was ready to be a part of their team again. However, last Friday night Mavs owner Mark Cuban made it clear that he had no intention of bringing back West. Dallas signed veteran guard Mike James last Sunday for the remainder of the season after he exhausted two 10-day contracts. A lot of dudes not feeling the D-League as an option to reviving their careers I see.

Tayshaun Prince scores 14 in 32 minutes off Grizzlies' bench in debut

Tayshaun Prince came off the bench in his Memphis Grizzlies debut and made his presence felt in 32 minutes. Prince hit 7-of-11 shots for 14 points. He also collected a rebound, three assists and a block. A solid start in Memphis, and I expect the former Piston to slide into the starting lineup after a few games. Newly acquired forwards Ed Davis and Austin Daye each played five...

Video: Fan finds out his favorite player, Tayshaun Prince, is traded, doesn't want to wear his jersey anymore

Prince feels right at home in Grizzlies' win over Wizards

But here was on Friday night in FedExForum, entering a game for the first time in his 11 NBA seasons not wearing a No...
