West was treated at the Rebound therapy center in Florida last year

Former NBA player Delonte West has landed a job at a Florida therapy center following an intervention with Mark Cuban.

As theGrio reported last year, after photos of West begging for money on the side of the road went viral, Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, offered to pay for West’s rehab. He was spotted picking up the former NBA player at a gas station in September. It was also reported that the NBA attempted to get West “the much needed assistance that he needs,” and eventually, Cuban and West’s mother convinced him to seek treatment at a rehab center.

Now, according to The Athletic, West has a new job at that very same treatment center.

It’s still an uphill battle, but he is climbing !”

In November, a video of West shooting hoops at the rehab center circulated online, highlighting positive steps in his recovery.
