Former NBA player Delonte West can finally get the help his family and former parents feel he desperately needs.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took the West off a gas station in Texas Monday after a picture circulated on social media that appeared to show the former first round of pedals in the area last week according to TMZ.

West, whose well-being has been a problem for his family and friends for several years, is open to the idea of ​​going into rehabilitation and the Cuban billionaire offers to help cover the costs, the report says.

West last played in the NBA for the Cuban Mavericks in 2012 and his tragic fall was partly documented by images of the 37-year-old uploaded to social media by passersby.

In 2016, after not resurrecting his professional career, he was famously spotted barefoot tramp out of a Jack In The Box restaurant in Houston wearing what appeared to be a hospital gown.

“I do, but I’m no longer on that life,” he said when asked if he was really Western.

Three years later, a photo on social media showed a man, which appears to be West, homeless, spreading more alarms in the NBA community. In January, a video came out showing a handcuffed and shirtless defeated West on the side of a road in Maryland after an incident in which a witness told police that the former ranger and the first round threw a glass bottle at another man.

No charges were filed, and it was later reported that West, who grew up in Maryland, knew the other man.

“I’m sick today [sic] my stomach now watching Delonte’s videos, ”Jameer Nelson, who played with West at Saint Joseph’s, wrote then.“ To answer all those who come to me about his situation … all we can do is pray for him and his family and hope he seeks their own help. Mental illness is something that many people deal with and don’t even know about it, until sometimes it’s too late. I’m not sure what exactly is going on with Dwest but he knows I’m in his corner and will help him overcome this. ”

Since then, Nelson, the NBA, his players ’association and Doc Rivers, one of West’s former coaches, have been trying to get in touch with West, he told TMZ.

West has played eight seasons in the NBA for the SuperSonics, Mavericks, Cavaliers and Celtics, earning $ 16 million.
