Delonte West Won't Return To Mavericks
Delonte West's tenure with the Dallas Mavericks appears to be over, according to a source.
West was suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team, his second suspension in two weeks.
West said he was being blamed for an argument between teammates after the Mavs' 88-76 exhibition loss to the Thunder.
"There was an argument between two teammates in the locker room last night that didn't involve me," said West, who had two points, one assist and three turnovers in 21 minutes against the Thunder. "Somehow I'm being blamed for it. I had nothing to do with it. I don't know what's going on."
The Mavericks' front office is concerned about West's influence on young players on the roster, according to a source.
West and the Mavericks could agree to a buyout that would leave him free to sign with another team.
