Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is lending a helping hand towards former Mavs player Delonte West.

Last week, a photo of a homeless West begging for money in the Dallas area went viral on Twitter.

TMZ is now reporting that the Mavs owner picked West up at a gas station to take him to a local hotel after reaching out to his family.

Sources connected to West’s family tell us that Cuban — who had been trying to reach DW on the phone for days — finally got in contact with Delonte … who agreed to meet the Mavs owner on Monday in Dallas.

We’re told Cuban took West to a local hotel … while his family formulates a game plan.

According to TMZ, West’s family wants him to go to rehab which Cuban has offered to pay for.

Our sources tell us West’s circle of fam and friends have been trying desperately to get Delonte to go to rehab … and he now seems open to the idea.

We’re even told Cuban has offered to help cover Delonte’s cost for treatment.

Pretty awesome move by Cuban. Hopefully West can get the help he needs.
