The NBA Friday announced a 10 game suspension without pay for West who pled guilty “to carrying a concealed weapon and wearing, carrying, and transporting a handgun, in violation of the law of the State of Maryland,” according to the league statement.

West played for the Cavaliers last season, giving them 9 points and 25 minutes a game off the bench. This summer he was traded to Minnesota where he was waived for financial reasons.
