Mavericks guard West suspended for 'conduct issue'
DALLAS (REUTERS) - Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West has been suspended indefinitely because of a "conduct issue", team coach Rick Carlisle said on Tuesday.
West, an eight-year league veteran who has played for four teams in five stints, was hit with the suspension two days after the Mavericks beat the Houston Rockets 123-104 in a pre-season game.
"He's been suspended and we're gonna talk to him today a little bit later," Carlisle told reporters. "It's a conduct issue and we're addressing it.
"The hope is it's gonna be resolved quickly, and we're gonna talk to him today and see where we're at. That's where it is. We'll work through it."
