Delonte West going back to the Chinese Basketball Association

Yao Ming’s Shanghai Sharks and Delonte West have agreed to a one-year contract bringing West back to China.

The details of the contract were not released but for West, this will be his second year in the CBA after an interesting season with the Fujian Sturgeons last year.

The Los Angeles Clippers expressed interests in West during the off-season but for whatever reason Doc Rivers decided to pull the plug on the idea of West’s NBA comeback.

Last season, in his CBA debut, West averaged 23 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds per game.
