Delonte West Returning To Mavericks, According To Report

The Dallas Mavericks will reportedly re-sign free agent guard Delonte West, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

The details are unclear, but if West actually is staying put in Dallas, consider it a good move for the franchise.

After losing veteran point guard Jason Kidd to the New York Knicks and Jason Terry to the Boston Celtics, West's value became that much more inflated for a team that's recently acquired Darren Collison and drafted Jared Cunningham to bolster a depleted backcourt.

While the Los Angeles Lakers were reportedly eyeing West, Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson told FishbowlRadioNetwork.com on Monday that he intended to re-sign the eight-year veteran.

"We've got 15 spots and 13 players are under contract,'' Nelson said. "We've got a little work to do yet, hopefully Delonte will slide into one of those spots."
