Former NBA player Delonte West has fallen on hard times in last few years. He's been spotted multiple times holding signs asking for money and appears to be homeless.
The most recent sighting of West holding a sign has prompted Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to get involved. On Monday he was spotted picking West up at a Texas gas station.
According to TMZ Sports, Cuban took West to a local hotel and has offered to pay for him to go to rehab.
From TMZ Sports:
As we previously reported, the former Cleveland Cavaliers guard has fallen on tough times in recent years ... and was most recently seen holding a sign on the street in Dallas last week.
Sources connected to West's family tell us that Cuban -- who had been trying to reach DW on the phone for days -- finally got in contact with Delonte ... who agreed to meet the Mavs owner on Monday in Dallas.
We're told Cuban took West to a local hotel ... while his family formulates a game plan.
Our sources tell us West's circle of fam and friends have been trying desperately to get Delonte to go to rehab ... and he now seems open to the idea.
You have to give Cuban a ton of credit. He isn't the first one to offer up help to West, but he's out picking him up and doing everything he can to lend a hand. Hopefully West takes the help that's being offered.
