Nets Fill Open Roster Spot With Mario West

When the New Jersey Nets waived Quinton Ross, they had already conducted their search for his replacement.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the team will ink shooting guard Mario West to fill the open roster spot.

The 26 year old Georgia Tech product spent three years with the Atlanta Hawks, averaging 0.8 points and 0.9 rebounds in 156 games, six of those starts.

After spending this preseason with the Boston Celtics, West was cut and played for the Maine Red Claws in the D-League.

West averaged 13.7 points and 2.9 assists in 43 games.

Just last week he asked to be released by the team so he could care for a sick family member.

"You only play this game for so long, I would hate to look back and say, 'Man, I wish I would've been there for my family," West told a Maine newspaper.

That was exactly one week ago.  With the NBA calling, West is back on the road away from his family.
