All told, Delonte West had been on his best behavior for the most part during his time in Dallas … until now.
The Mavericks suspended West for conduct detrimental to the team. According to published reports, Delonte blew up in the locker room last night following the Mavs’ preseason win over the Houston Rockets.
Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West has been suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. Carlisle did not specify a timetable for West’s suspension.
Sources said that West’s suspension stems at least in part from an outburst in the locker room after the Mavs’ 123-104 preseason win Monday over the Houston Rockets. He had 2 points, 2 assists and 1 rebound in 16 minutes during the win.
