Just over a week after Delonte West signed on to play for the Texas Legends, the troubled point guard pulled out of his contract with the D-League affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks, NBA.com reports.
The guard was looking for a chance to get back in the NBA after the Mavericks cut ties with him during training camp twice for what the team deemed "conduct detrimental to the team."
West struggled to find another team to before coming to terms with the Legends. West never suited up for the Legends and again finds his basketball career at a crossroads.
On Friday night, the Dallas Morning News reported that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said that West had "no chance" of rejoining the Mavericks, no matter what he did for their D-League team.
NBA.com reports that the Memphis Grizzlies, who are looking for point guard help, recently inquired about West, but decided not to make him an offer.

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.

He had started 798 straight games (695 in regular season, 103 in playoffs) when healthy, dating to 2004-05 for the Detroit Pistons. But here was on Friday night in FedExForum, entering a game for the first time in his 11 NBA seasons not wearing a No...

The Wizards dropped an ugly game as they fell to the Grizzlies 85-76. The best way I can describe this game was that Memphis was the better bad team tonight. This was not a good game from either side, as there were a lot of ugly shots going up and ugly passes being...
