After a three month absence, Delonte West is back in North Texas.
But the Dallas Mavericks have no plans to have him rejoin the team. At least not for now.
The former Mavs player has signed with the NBA D-League's Texas Legends after being cut by Dallas in October.
West has yet to suit up for the Legends, who lost 104-88 to the Idaho Stampede at Dr. Pepper Arena on Saturday.
Despite their affiliation with the Legends, the signing has no connection to the Mavericks. West remains a free agent as far as the NBA is concerned, free to sign with any team.
Before the Mavs' game with San Antonio on Saturday, Mark Cuban said there are no plans to have West join the Mavs this season.
"That doesn't mean I don't like Delonte and care about him as a person and want to help him get back on track."
West was released after twice being suspended in the preseason by coach Rick Carlisle.
The Mavs have struggled to find a consistent backup point guard for most of the season. The team appears ready to sign Mike James for the rest of the season after his second 10-day contract expires today.
Under first year coach and former Maverick Eduardo Najera, the Texas Legends are currently struggling. The Legends have lost nine straight after Saturday's game, dropping them to 11-14 and out of the D-League's playoff picture for the moment.
