Delonte West is officially a D-Leaguer. The Texas Legends announced the acquisition of the colorful former Mavericks guard Friday. West made himself eligible for the D-League player pool this week, and Donnie Nelson’s Legends were at the front of the waiver line. West is expected to join the Legends within a few days.
West, who has also played for the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers and Seattle Supersonics during his eight-year career, hopes to earn another shot in the NBA via the D-League. However, that isn’t likely to happen with the Mavs, who dismissed West in large part due to concerns about the influence he could have on the team’s younger players.
