According to Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania, Delonte West now has a job at the rehab facility he attended in Florida. We’ve been tough on Mavericks owner Mark Cuban here at OutKick, but what he’s done for Delonte is nothing short of heroic.
Brilliant work, Mr. Cuban.
Update on Delonte West: West now has a job at the Rebound therapy center in Florida, which is the rehab facility he attended.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 19, 2021
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban reunited West with his mother in September and has stayed in close contact.
In January of 2020, Delonte West was shown on video panhandling in the Washington D.C. area and being taken away in handcuffs. By September, Mark Cuban found the 37-year-old former NBA player at a gas station and offered to pay for his rehabilitation.
West accepted his offer and is currently “doing well,” according to Shams’ report. This is an incredible turnaround for Delonte West, after he became the butt of far too many jokes last year.
