Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban continues to give support for former Mavs player Delonte West. The 37-year-old previously went viral on social media after photos of him being homeless on the streets surfaced. Cuban recently made sure West would get some much-needed help, and the Mavs owner continues to give updates on his condition.

On this Election Day, Cuban is trying to spread good news:


In the latter stages of his basketball career, West joined the Mavs in 2011. He spent one full season with the team before getting waived the following season after suspension issues.

West was then acquired by the Mavs’ D-League team in the Texas Legends in January 2013. In October of that year, he went to China to play for the Fujian Xunxing Sturgeons in the Chinese Basketball Association.

In July 2014, West joined the Los Angeles Clippers for the 2014 NBA Summer League but went back to China to play for the Shanghai Sharks. This was then followed by a stint with Guaros de Lara of the Venezuelan Liga Profesional de Baloncesto, where he failed to appear in a single game.

West last took the court back in 2015 as a player for the Texas Legends in March 2015 before suffering a season-ending leg injury. Things took a quick turn as a photo of West panhandling in Temple Hills, Maryland went viral in June 2016. Four years later, his situation got even worse as a video showed West being beaten on a highway located in Washington, D.C.

In September 2020, after photos circulated of West panhandling at an intersection in Dallas, Cuban decided to pick West up from a gas station. Cuban offered to pay for rehabilitation treatment and reunited West with his mother. With Cuban’s help, West will look to make it back on track and be in a better living situation moving forward.
