West Hopes to Remain with Mavericks
While the Mavs’ primary focus is on (Deron) Williams, (Delonte) West will have to wait.
“Free agency is kind of tricky,” West said. “First and foremost, you always want to go after the guys at the top of free agency, guys that can definitely put your team over the top. After that I think the dominoes will fall into place.”
West signed a one-year, $1.18 million free-agent contract with the Mavs last Dec. 13 and endured a season riddled with injuries.
West played 44 games, including 33 starts, and averaged 9.6 points and 3.2 assists in 24.1 minutes per game. He shot 46.1 percent from the field, 35.5 from 3-point range and 88.6 percent of his free-throw attempts.
The Mavericks like his aggressiveness. But they haven’t given West a commitment.
“Obviously I’d love to remain here in Dallas,” West said.
