As per a recent report from Shams Charania of The Athletic, Delonte West’s college coach at Saint Joseph, Phil Martelli and West’s former player agent, Noah Croom have been in communication with each other about providing him support. They all want him to find his place in life and they want to lend a helping hand when needed. The NBPA helped facilitate West's residence change from Dallas to Maryland in recent years and extensively supported him financially, as recently as this month, according to sources.

Ainge and the Celtics have given him a scouting job for games in the D.C. and East Coast area but West has had mixed results due to fluctuating attendance. His close friends and family have all stepped in whenever they could.
