Free agent guard Delonte West will be joining the likes of Eddy Curry, Tracy McGrady and others by taking his talents to China after signing a one-year deal with a pro team, according to CSN Northwest.
From CSN Northwest :
West, 30, will have the opportunity to latch onto an NBA team once the Chinese Basketball Association's season concludes in February.The veteran was eager to prove to NBA teams that he was capable of taking a contending team to the next level.Though, no one was willing to offer a guaranteed deal to his liking. Playing in China will allow NBA personnel to observe his improvements on and off the court.
For a great role player who is known for his off-court distractions, this is a great opportunity for West to get his mind right and prove to NBA teams that he belongs in the league. Although living and playing in China may be a hard adaptation, if he accepts the challenge and he does well overseas, an NBA team will be calling him up in no time.
