Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has stated that Delonte West is still struggling with addiction despite a relatively successful stint in rehab.
The Mavs owner also mentioned that he has remained in close contact with his former player, and admitted that his condition isn’t getting much better.
“It’s a struggle for him,” Cuban told TMZ.
“I mean, addiction is awful. And mental illness is awful. He’s at the point in his life where he’s got to want to be helped.”
“You know, he’s got to want to help himself first.
“I’ve tried. I know it’s tough on him, but I wish him nothing but the best.”
