Former Mavericks guard Delonte West is desperate to get back into the NBA, and even though he has a possible 10 day contract with Grizzlies pending, ESPN Dallas is reporting that West has entered his name into the D-League pool.
The specifics are if the Grizzlies don’t sign West, he could jump right to the front of the list in the pool, which would allow him to play for Texas Legends, who are an affiliate of the Mavs.
Sources say West would prefer the league stint in hopes of earning his way back on to the Mavericks roster.
A source close to West told Jeff “Skin” Wade of the Ben and Skin Show on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM that the guard prefers a potential situation with the Legends to the Grizzlies scenario in hopes that a good showing with the D-League team could put him back into favor with the Mavs, who released him before the regular season began.
One can only assume West thinks the Mavs are so bad, he can get on the team and ball out.
