Delonte West: From NBA Star to Furniture Salesman!
The hard times of the NBA lockout continue for unemployed ballers.
Indefinitely barred from signing with a team due to the league’s labor dispute, unrestricted free agent guard Delonte West picked up another job at Regency Furniture Showrooms, a furniture chain in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Yes, we’re serious. West also posted a series of pics on his Twitter.
Regency sells “living room, dining room, kitchen, office and bedroom furniture, along with mattress and accessories,” according to its official website.
In August, West tweeted that he was applying for a job at Home Depot. West also told TrueHoop’s Adam Reisinger in August he applied to Sam’s Club.
On his application, West checked “Yes” when asked if he had ever been convicted of a crime. For the explanation, he cited simply “Misunderstanding.”
West was arrested on September 2009, after police found guns in a guitar case on his three-wheeled motorcycle. West pleaded guilty in July 2010.
The seven-year NBA veteran has scored 9.7 points and dished out 3.7 assists per game career. He also may have scored with LeBron’s mom in ’10.
