Former Boston Celtics player Delonte West has a new job at the rehab facility he once attended.
Delonte West seems to be making great strides ever since he was spotted was spotted panhandling in Dallas in September 2020. He is reportedly working at the same rehab center that he attended to get treatment.

“Update on Delonte West: West now has a job at the Rebound therapy center in Florida, which is the rehab facility he attended.”
“Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban reunited West with his mother in September and has stayed in close contact.”

In November of 2020, Mark Cuban shared a positive update on Delonte West’s progress. He took to Twitter Nov. 2nd to share the good news about West’s journey along with a couple of photos. He expressed,
“Because we all want something to feel great about today, here is your Delonte West update. It’s still an uphill battle, but he is climbing!
Shortly after Mark Cuban found Delonte West, NBA sports reporter Shams Charania tweeted:
“Mark Cuban reached out to Delonte West’s mother, Delphina Addison, asking how he can help. Answer was simple: Find Delonte. Cuban did on Monday, waited with West until his mother arrived to hotel, and West finally took step many close to him have awaited: Entered rehab.”
Mark Cuban, an angel investor who many have come to know from the popular show, Shark Tank, responded to criticism of publicly helping West and said:
“Most of the people I help dont have a public personae . They don’t have fans that are worried about them. They have family who worry about them and I deal directly with them. I posted this because Delonte wants his fans to know he is making progress.”
