Delonte West joins D-League team

Guard Delonte West has been acquired by the Texas Legends, setting him up in the NBA Development League three months after he left the Dallas Mavericks following a pair of suspensions.

West was waived on October after two suspensions in as many weeks for conduct detrimental to the Mavericks. West, an eighth-year pro who has bipolar disorder, was involved in a pair of locker room incidents during the preseason, and was on his second straight one-year contract for the veteran minimum, which was $1.2 million this season.

Part of West's value a year ago came from being a younger, experienced player to help point guard Jason Kidd and Jason Terry. The Mavericks now have a much younger backcourt in Darren Collison and O.J. Mayo.
