Either Delonte West has some sort of hush-hush agreement with the Mavericks about his return to Dallas next season, or West he is just an unconditional supporter of Mark Cuban and company. As you may have heard, Deron Williams has reportedly narrowed his list of potential teams down to two: the Nets and the Mavericks (although the Rockets could now be in play). Delonte’s contract with the Mavericks is up and he is set to become a free agent on Sunday just like Williams, but that didn’t stop him from taking to Twitter early Thursday morning to convince Deron that Dallas would be his best choice next season.

Dirk would indeed be the best player Williams has ever played with, but he is also 34 whereas Deron just turned 28. If a young superstar like Dwight Howard wound up with the Nets, Williams could play on a team with the potential to be a force for years to come — not just in the short term. As far as Delonte being able to spell Deron when he needs a breather, I guess he knows something we don’t about his contract situation. Otherwise he sounds pretty delusional.
