No word yet on how Delonte performed at the tryout (West looked good knocking down a couple 3s) … but just the fact he’s out there is encouraging.
West — who last played in the NBA for the Dallas Mavericks during the 2011-2012 season — has had several run-ins with the cops over the years since leaving basketball.
Just a few months back, in October, Delonte was arrested outside a police station in Palm Beach County, FL for allegedly banging on the door of the station, before cursing out cops.
But, Delonte — who has battled addiction — worked very hard to get himself back on track (with the help of supporters like Mark Cuban).
We broke the story a few weeks back that West was busting his ass in the gym in an effort to prepare for today’s tryout.
During his time in the NBA, West — the 24th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft — was no scrub. DW played 8 seasons for the Celtics, SuperSonics and Cavs … in addition to the Mavs. He averaged 10 points, 3 rebounds and nearly 4 assists a game for his career.
It’s not yet known if Delonte will make a team … but just the fact he’s out there is the real win here.
