FRISCO, Texas -- Delonte West has been acquired by the NBA Development League affiliate for the Dallas Mavericks. He won't be playing for the big club again.
The former Mavericks guard is set to join the Texas Legends in the next few days, but Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said Friday that West playing for Dallas was "not gonna happen."
West, who has bipolar disorder, was released in October after two suspensions in as many weeks.
West can sign with any NBA team while with the Legends, who play in the Dallas suburb of Frisco. The Legends acquired him because they were next in line to pick up players from the D-League player pool when West joined it.
