Guard Delonte West has agreed to a one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks, sources close to the 28-year-old say.

West, a talented guard known best for his off-court personality, also had spoken with the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers in the past week. As recently as three days ago, the defensive-minded guard was prepared to re-sign with the Celtics. Dallas, however, showed more interest and made West feel needed.

West only played 24 regular season games last season for the Boston Celtics, but he scored in double-figures in five of Boston’s nine Playoff games. He has career averages of 9.7 ppg and 3.6 apg.
