Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West seems to finally be getting the help he needs.
West, who was recently seen begging for money in the streets of Dallas, reportedly has checked into a rehab facility.
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. 🙏🏽 https://t.co/IiVKGH3a62

It is an incredible gesture by Cuban and one that could help West get his life back on track.
The former NBA player spent eight seasons in the NBA, including two-and-a-half seasons with the Cavs.
He last played for Cuban’s Mavericks during the 2011-12 season. West has openly battled bipolar depression and the NBA has repeatedly tried to get him the help he needs.
In his career, West averaged 9.7 points, 3.6 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game.
Hopefully, West’s willingness to get help is a major sign that he will soon be living a healthier and happier way of life.
