Delonte West Update: He Completed Rehab And Is Now Working At The Center

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.

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.

  1. For those who might not know, Delonte West was a decent player in the NBA but one night at a party he met Lebron James’ mother and it is said from very reliable sources that he had sex with James’ mother Gloria. After finding out, Lebron blackballed West (no pun intended) and essentially forced him out of the league and into depression, drug use and whatnot. So he is not just some junkie. He had his life/career ripped apart over a one night stand and while this story is considered “rumor’s”, it comes from very reliable sources. I’m happy for Delonte.
