|Delonte West Refuses D-League Spot|
Looks like Allen Iverson isn't the only one to turn down a D-League roster spot from the Dallas Mavericks affiliate, the Texas Legends, Delonte West has reportedly failed to report after he learned that the Mavericks had no intention of bringing him onto their roster for the remainder of the season.
West was under the impression that the Mavericks might re-sign him after a stint in the minor league, the source said. The Texas Legends claimed West off waivers on Jan. 25 and expected him to report. After that acquisition, however, Cuban said hewasn't bringing back West.
Once West got wind of Cuban's words he changed his mind about playing for the Legends and has not reported, the source said. West was on the Legends' roster early Saturday afternoon, but did not have a jersey number assigned to him.
The Mavericks waived West on Oct. 30 after suspending him twice that month for conduct detrimental to the team. West would be eligible to sign with any NBA team if he played for the Legends.
