Former Cleveland Cavalier and Dallas Maverick, Delonte West is now working at the drug rehabilitation center in Florida that he attended. Dallas Mavs owner Mark Cuban helped the former homeless NBA player get his life back on track, a source confirmed to ESPN.
West was recently treated at the Rebound Therapy Center in Florida. Cuban located and picked up West at a gas station after pictures circulated of him panhandling at an intersection in Dallas. Cuban also took the time to help West reconnect with his mother.
Cuban is among a circle of people involved in the NBA who in recent years have been attempting to help West. The ex-player has publicly discussed his diagnosis of bipolar disorder during his NBA career.
West, 37, averaged 9.7 points and 3.6 assists per game over eight NBA seasons with four teams. He last played in 2011-12, with Dallas.
