A little over a week ago, the Texas Legends acquired Delonte West off the D-League player pool, in hopes that the 29-year-old journeyman could rejuvenate his professional career. But as the days have passed, West is nowhere to be found, leaving both the Legends and their NBA affiliate Dallas Mavericks in limbo. Via ESPN.com: “The Legends claimed West on Jan. 25, but he has yet to report to Frisco. A source said it’s up to West whether he will play for the Legends, who are still open to having him on the team and continue to list him on the roster on the team’s website. West has complicated the process by parting ways with agent Dan Fegan. West, who has also played for the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers and Seattle Supersonics during his eight-year career, has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. While he’s been a productive player, his career has been pockmarked by off-court issues. The odds of West returning to the NBA without a stint in the D-League or overseas are extremely slim.”
