Delonte West is taking his talents to China — again.
According to Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter Chris Haynes, West has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association.
The Sharks are owned by Yao Ming, who bought the team in 2009. Yao played for the Sharks from 1997-2002 before leaving for the NBA.
This will be West’s second straight season in China. He played in the NBA from 2004-2012 but had many problems and has not been in the league since being released by the Mavericks following multiple issues. West played with the Clippers’ summer league team but did not end up signed to their roster. He indicated he was hoping for another NBA shot, but it does not look like that will happen anytime soon for the 31-year-old.
