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.

Red Sox score 7 in 7th to beat Rangers 9-4

BOSTON (AP)  Dustin Pedroia waved home the tiebreaking run on a wild pitch, then singled in two more during Boston's seven-run seventh inning on Wednesday night and the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 9-4 for their third straight victory.

Chris Sale (5-2) struck out six, falling short in his attempt to become the first pitcher in baseball's modern era to strike out at least 10 batters in nine straight games in one season. He allowed three earned runs, six hits and a walk in 7 1/3 innings and received more runs of support in the seventh inning alone than in any previous game this season.

Sam Dyson (1-5) faced seven batters in relief of Martin Perez and gave up four hits, three walks - two intentional - and a wild pitch without retiring a batter. Mike Napoli homered for Texas, which has lost three of four to follow a 10-game winning streak.
