Delonte West is back in the news since a viral picture has surfaced of him leaving many concerned with his current lifestyle. The alleged reports surrounding the image claim that he is homeless, broke and allegedly on drugs.

The former star spent eight seasons in the NBA and had about $16.5 million during his ball career. Several outlets have reported that he is now homeless, although it is pure speculation at this point.

Back in 2016, he was allegedly seen in Maryland asking for money on the side of the street. However, he denied the reports and said that he was simply helping a paralyzed man in need.

In addition, there were reports that he was allegedly diagnosed with a mental health disorder while playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
However, following the release of the image, a man who claims to be Delonte’s cousin came out to shut down the speculation around West,
“This is my mother with my cousin Delonte West facts. He has struggled with Mental Health his entire life along with battling multiple media speculated accusations. For the protection of my family and his life. I ask that you please not crucify him,” he wrote alongside a pictue of Delonte with his mother.
