The Mavericks officially confirmed what Eddie Sefko reported earlier this afternoon. Delonte West has been waived, which means the Mavericks will eat his $1.2 million veteran-minimum salary.

Here is the release from the Mavericks:

MAVERICKS WAIVE GUARD DELONTE WEST

DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks announced today they have requested waivers on guard Delonte West. West was originally signed as a free agent by the Mavericks on Dec. 13, 2011 and then re-signed on July 26, 2012.

West (6-3, 180) averaged 9.6 points, 3.2 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 24.1 minutes in 44 games (33 starts) last season despite suffering a fractured and dislocated right ring finger on Feb. 15 against the Denver Nuggets. The injury forced West out of 21 games, but he returned to start the final 13 games of the regular season.

West saw action in seven games this preseason and averaged 5.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 17.6 minutes per game.
