Report: Delonte West joining NBA's D-League

The NBA just hasn't been the same without former C's guard Delonte West, but that looks to be fixed soon.

If he can help it, anyways.

West will reportedly enter the NBA D-League pool, which would allow him to join the team with the first waiver spot, the Texas Legends, according to ESPN. The Legend are an affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks, the team West was released from prior to the start of the season.

West was suspended twice for conduct detrimental to the team before his release on October 30, and hasn't played in an NBA game since.

The ESPN report also indicates that the Memphis Grizzlies are interested in West, but another report has that he would prefer to join the Legends and get back on the good side of Mavs owner Mark Cuban in hopes to re-join the team at some point.

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
