Delonte West enjoys playing basketball again. The former NBA player had numerous economic and psychological problems since saying goodbye to elite sport in 2015.

The 38-year-old is in Washington D.C. for the BIG3 League tryouts. That's a 3-on-3 pro basketball league founded by Ice Cube featuring All-Stars, Hall of Famers, and World Champions.

Nowadays it attracts such players as Joe Johnson, Reggie Evans, Leandro Barbosa, Josh Smith, Rashard Lewis, or Nate Robinson.

Delonte West, who has battled an addiction to embalming fluid, alcohol and worked very hard to get himself back on track with the help of supporters like Mark Cuban, last played in the NBA for the Dallas Mavericks during the 2011-12 season.

Before the stint in Texas, the 1.93-meter guard spent his time with the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Seattle SuperSonics.

He holds NBA career averages of 9.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 3.6 assists over 432 duels.
