As expected, Delonte West waived by Minnesota

This was purely a financial move, West’s non-guaranteed deal meant he only had to be paid $500,000 of the $4.5 million he was owed.

West is now a free agent and will likely draw interest from teams, although likely at a veteran minimum’s salary. West was a solid backup point guard off the bench for Cleveland last season, playing 25 minutes a game and scoring nearly nine points (in the 60 games he played).

West was shipped to Minnesota in a deal along with Sebastian Telfair in exchange for Ramon Sessions, Ryan Hollins, and an 2013 second round pick.

    Possible that Lakers will trade away Sasha and sign Delonte.

    Man, that’s tough news for Delonte.
    The good news is that he doesn’t have to worry about supporting his girlfriend. I heard that her son recently came into a lot of money.
