NBA Rumors: Are the Dallas Mavericks Done with Delonte West?

| by Alex Groberman

Delonte West was suspended by the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday for conduct detrimental to the team. This is the second time in as many weeks that West has been punished and, apparently, Mavericks brass is tired of the headaches. More importantly, though, they are reportedly worried that West may end up serving as a bad example for their younger players.

According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, West’s agent is currently in negotiations with the team regarding the specific terms of his client’s departure. Among the options being discussed: West being bought out or being cut, or a situation where he just agrees to leave and become a free agent (and the Mavericks wouldn’t have to pay him).

Here was the rant West went on yesterday as news of his suspension broke:

So there you go.

Either way, we should get a definitive statement on West’s status with the Mavericks by the end of today.

(Kudos ESPN)
