Last month, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was able to reach former NBA player Delonte West after he was seen panhandling.
In an update, Cuban has shared a photo of West on the road to recovery. West is horseback riding in the flick and all seems well. “Ladies & Gentlemen, I present to you, Delonte West,” Cuban captioned the photo. “A long, long , long way to go, but he has taken the first steps and shared these with all of us as a thank you for the love and support.”
A source told TMZ last month that family and friends had been trying to get West into a rehab program for drug treatment.
“Sources connected to West’s family tell us that Cuban — who had been trying to reach DW on the phone for days — finally got in contact with Delonte … who agreed to meet the Mavs owner on Monday in Dallas. We’re told Cuban took West to a local hotel … while his family formulates a game plan. Our sources tell us West’s circle of fam and friends have been trying desperately to get Delonte to go to rehab … and he now seems open to the idea,” the site reported in September.See Delonte West’s update below. We are keeping him in our prayers at this time.
