West, acquired by the Minnesota Timberwolves this summer from the Cleveland Cavaliers, was recently released. NBA.com is reporting that three teams are interested in West, who averaged 8.8 points, 2.8 rebound and 3.3 assists for the Cavs last season. The site reports that "early word is he could end up with" the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls or Dallas Mavericks.
West gained some infamy last fall when he got pulled over for a traffic violation on a three-wheeled motorcycle and was found to have a 9mm Beretta, .357 Magnum and a Remington 870 in his guitar case. He pleaded guilty last month and got a sentence that includes 40 hours of community service, and electronic monitoring.
