Mavericks hope to re-sign Delonte West

The Mavericks remain interested in re-signing Delonte West, a source said.

The Mavs still intend to add backcourt depth after acquiring point guard Darren Collison and shooting guard Dahntay Jones in a sign-and-trade deal with the Indiana Pacers. Dallas’ decision makers value West’s toughness and versatility and would like him to return to the Mavs after averaging 9.6 points, 3.2 assists and 1.3 steals as a part-time starter last season.

As with every move the Mavs make this summer, West’s return would have to be at the right price, which is likely in the salary range of $2 million.
