It looks like things are looking up for former NBA star Delonte West. Last year, many fans and peers expressed their concern for Delonte, and with the help of Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, he was able to check into a rehab facility to receive treatment. Fast-forward, and it looks things are still going well.
Reporter Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium revealed that Delonte has now received employment at the very same facility where he received his treatment. He said, “West now has a job at the Rebound therapy center in Florida, which is the rehab facility he attended. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban reunited West with his mother in September and has stayed in close contact.”

Concerns about Delonte’s well-being started to rise after a photo of him holding up a sign on the side of the street started to go viral. That caused many fans to express that they hoped he would receive the help that he needed from his former peers in the NBA.
Shortly after, Mark Cuban and Delonte were spotted in a convenience store, and it was later reported that Delonte had agreed to check into a rehabilitation center.
We’re happy to hear that Delonte is still in a great space as we start off this new year.
