Delonte West is receiving some help.
According to TMZ, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban found the ex-NBA star and picked him up at a gas station in the DFW area.
“Sources connected to West’s family tell us that Cuban — who had been trying to reach DW on the phone for days — finally got in contact with Delonte … who agreed to meet the Mavs owner on Monday in Dallas.
We’re told Cuban took West to a local hotel … while his family formulates a game plan.
Our sources tell us West’s circle of fam and friends have been trying desperately to get Delonte to go to rehab … and he now seems open to the idea.”

The situation regarding West came to ahead last week when a photo surfaced showing him on the streets begging for money.
