Delonte West to Re-Join Mavericks Following Suspension

by October 17, 2012

Delonte West’s suspension only lasted one day, and the eight-year NBA veteran will suit up tonight as the Mavericks host the Phoenix Suns. Per the Dallas Morning News: “The Mavericks met Tuesday evening with Delonte West and things have been smoothed over between the veteran guard and the team. President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson and coach Rick Carlisle met with West and Nelson said things are ‘back on track.’ In addition, Carlisle said the guard will rejoin the team Wednesday. ‘Delonte West will be back with the team [Wednesday] for shoot- around and be available for [Wednesday] night’s game versus Phoenix,’ Carlisle said. West was suspended after Monday’s game against Houston for unspecified conduct detrimental to the team. West was seen sitting at the end of the bench during a timeout while the rest of the team was huddled at the other end. West is involved in a crowded situation in the backcourt, with minutes hard to come by for everybody.”
