Awesome step in the right direction for Delonte West — the ex-NBAer is now employed by the same rehab facility he received treatment from late last year!!
As we previously reported … Mark Cuban personally tracked down the 37-year-old at a Dallas gas station in September 2020 and helped the hooper reconnect with his mother.
Together, West’s mom and Cuban convinced the former Dallas Maverick to seek treatment at the Rebound therapy center in Florida … as an attempt to bounce back from hard times.
The progress was clearly visible — with West smiling from ear-to-ear during activities like horseback riding, frisbee golf and kayaking as he took steps towards recovery.
Now, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reports West will continue to surround himself within the Rebound family … this time, as an employee.
The report also states West has maintained contact with Cuban and his family as he continues to work on his health.
Of course, West was the 24th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft … playing for the SuperSonics, Mavs, Cavs and Celtics.
The guard fell on hard times in the years following his hoops career … and members of the NBA community — including Cuban, Doc Rivers and Jameer Nelson — have been focused on trying to get West back on his feet.
The recent updates have been positive — West was even spotted working on his jumper back in November … and it’s clear he has a strong support system behind him.
