• Delonte West shows significant improvement after getting proper treatment
  • West working as an employee for a rehab facility in Florida
  • Mavs owner Mark Cuban is still keeping tabs with the former NBA player

Delonte West appears to have gotten over the hump of hard times and has made progress at a rehabilitation facility in Florida.

The 37-year-old has been responding well to treatment, and it appears he will stay on at the aforementioned therapy center as an employee.

In the latest update on the former NBA player, TMZ reveals that West is in the right direction thanks to the rehab center. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban stepped up to assist the 24th pick of the 2004 NBA Draft, even tracking down the player's mother to help out.

Both Cuban and West’s mother were able to convince the 6-foot-3 guard to undergo rehab and the results from all that are obvious.

West is seen smiling again after treatment, engaging in activities such as horseback riding, frisbee golf and kayaking.

This development is a big turnaround for the former NBA player who hit rock bottom when his basketball career took a tumble.

West’s last NBA stint was with the Mavericks in 2012. His last taste of court action was with the G-League where he played for the Texas Legends. He was eventually waived after suffering a season-ending injury on Apr. 2, 2015.

It has been almost a year when disturbing videos of West spread over social media. That included footage showing the 6-foot-3 guard getting beaten up in the streets.

Aside from Cuban, others stepped up to help West back to his feet. That included LeBron James, a former teammate of the player with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The four-time NBA champion is willing to spend whatever amount was needed to assist West financially.

Boston Celtics president Danny Ainge was also open to helping out West again. It was the second time that the team executive would come to the aid of the Washington, D.C. native who was employed as a scout for the franchise.
