Delonte West Seen Panhandling in Virginia Recently

The saga of former NBA player Delonte West has taken another turn for the worse according to a recent sighting of him in public.

Social media users have been posting a recent video of West as he was allegedly panhandling in Virginia once again.

This comes after several attempts by people, specifically Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban to steer him back in the right direction after he was seen years ago doing the same thing in the streets.

Almost two years ago in the fall of 2020, the ex-NBA player, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, had been battling substance abuse issues and homelessness. After Cuban got in touch with West’s mother, Delphina Addison, he reunited her with West at a gas station. The former Dallas Mavericks player entered a rehab facility in Florida with the help of the Shark Tank star.

Several weeks later, the Shark Tank cast member had given an update on the progress of the recovery of West with a photograph of the ex-basketball player on Twitter.

Cuban had posted on his Twitter account the first signs of West’s rehab efforts.

An update was posted about West in January 2021, on Twitter, The Athletic‘s Shams Charania had reported that West was an employee at the same facility in Florida where he spent his rehab in.

Earlier this year in March, West tried out for Ice Cube‘s BIG3 basketball league as shown in the video below.

Suffice it to say, he has fallen upon hard times again.

Over his eight-year NBA career, West had averaged 9.7 points and 3.6 assists per game while playing for four different teams, the Dallas Mavericks, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Seattle SuperSonics, and the Boston Celtics.
