Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West came to the team before the lockout-shortened 2011-12 NBA season. He averaged 9.6 points per game and the Mavs are hoping to bring him back for another season. Now that Dallas has missed out on the Deron Williams sweepstakes and will be losing Jason Terry to the Boston Celtics, it seems even more vital that they be able to lock up West.
Mike Fisher of FOX Sports Southwest reports that the Mavericks and West should both know what will happen regarding the situation by Friday night. Considering that Wednesday is the first day that free agents can sign new contracts, this seems likely to be true.
Mavericks fans will just have to stay tuned and find out whether West will be yet another casualty of this already-rough 2012 offseason.
