Delonte West a no-show for D-League team in Texas

Delonte West hasn't joined the Texas Legends more than two weeks after the NBA Development League team acquired his rights.

West was picked up by the affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks on Jan. 25, though Mavericks owner Mark Cuban flatly ruled out a return to the team that suspended the veteran guard twice in two weeks before waiving him in October.

Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, a co-owner of the Legends, says the "door is open" but he hasn't had any contact with a new agent for West.

West, who has bipolar disorder, was a valuable role player in a veteran backcourt for Dallas last season. His preseason playing time in October was limited behind younger guards Darren Collison and O.J. Mayo.
