Mark Cuban Gives Unfortunate And Very Sad Delonte West Update


After Delonte West was spotted on the streets of Dallas again in September 2020, holding a sign asking people for money, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban went actively looking for West, found him and picked him up at a Dallas gas station in an attempt to help his former player get his life back on track.

Cuban took West to a local hotel and offered to pay for his treatment, something West agreed to, as went to rehab in Florida, and eventually appeared to be back on track.

Unfortunately, West drew the attention of many NBA fans once again after he was seen panhandling on the streets in Alexandria, Virginia, earlier this year.

Speaking to TMZ, Mark Cuban now gave an unsurprising yet very sad update on West.


Interviewer: Have you been in contact with Delonte West? How is he doing?

Cuban: I have been. He’s gotta want to help himself first. I’ve tried. I know it’s tough on him but I wish him nothing but the best.

Interviewer: Is it the same? Any better?

Cuban: No. It’s a struggle for him. Addiction is awful, mental illness is awful, but he’s at a point in his life where he’s gotta wanna be helped.”
