Delonte West Joins Texas Legends

FRIDAY, 12:15pm: The Texas Legends have officially added West to their roster, the team announced today in a press release. Despite the fact that the Legends are the Mavericks' D-League affiliate, we probably shouldn't assume West will return to the Mavs after the way the two sides parted ways earlier in the season. Still, if West impresses in the D-League, he could earn an NBA contract before season's end.

WEDNESDAY, 7:05pm: Free agent guard Delonte West has filed paperwork to join the NBA Developmental League, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com (on Twitter).  Ironically, the Texas Legends, affiliate of the Mavericks, are the first team in the waiver line (Twitter link).  Dallas cut West loose in November.

Earlier this week it was reported that the Grizzlies were giving serious consideration to signing West as they look to fill out their roster.  However, Stein (via Twitter) hears that Memphis is likely to pass on him.  The Lakers gave some thought to signing West at one point this season but they opted against it in an effort to maintain some level of stability.
