Timberwolves waive Delonte West
But West's $4.6 million contract was guaranteed for only $500,000 if he was waived by Wednesday.
West pleaded guilty last month to weapons charges. He was sentenced to eight months of home detention, two years of unsupervised probation, 40 hours of community service and psychological counseling.
Prosecutors said that the sentence would allow West to attend practices and travel to NBA games as his team's schedule requires, but NBA officials are reviewing the case for possible further discipline.
