West’s most recent NBA team was the Dallas Mavericks, but he was suspended by the team twice and eventually waived. Last season he also played for the Texas Legends in D-League.

If he doesn’t run into trouble off the court, West would be a decent addition to both teams. He is a good defensive player who can guard multiple positions and can also knock down the 3-point shot.
