Mario West has signed with the Italian team Tezenis Verona.
The swingman separated his shoulder back in April while playing for New Jersey, but he's all healed up and heading overseas. He should do much better there than in the NBA, as he has career averages of just 1.0 ppg, 0.9 rebounds and 0.3 assists. Wed, Aug 3, 2011 07:19:00 AM

The Nets have re-signed Mario West for the final three games of the season.

West started at SG on Wednesday but went scoreless in 13 minutes. As that line indicates, he's not even worth a temporary pickup.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

Mario West started at shooting guard for the Nets on Wednesday, playing 13 minutes with no points and two rebounds to his credit.

Unless the entire Nets' backcourt crumbles to end the year, he's not worth your attention in fantasy leagues.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

Nets signed G/F Mario West to a 10-day contract.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

The Nets are expected to sign free agent G/F Mario West.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

Training camp invitee Mario West could be in the running for the Celtics' regular season roster.

The high-energy swingman isn't a fantasy asset but he continues to win over coaches and teammates with his hustle. "[West] just plays hard ... and he could be a defensive stopper," said Doc Rivers. "He needs to improve his offense, but the guys love him because of the way he plays."

Mario West - G/F - Nets

Mario West has a training camp invitation from the Celtics.

They're pretty deep at guard, but West was a crowd favorite in Atlanta and is all hustle, all the time. It would not be surprising to see him catch on with an NBA team this season.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

The Hawks have signed backup forward Mario West for the remainder of the season.

West has appeared in eight games during two 10-day stints, averaging just six minutes per game. He had been playing in the D-League for the Maine Red Claws and clearly has no fantasy appeal.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

The Atlanta Hawks have signed Mario West to another 10-day contract.

The Hawks are too deep for West to see any value. Don't expect anything from the local product, who has taken three shots in four games with the Hawks.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

Hawks signed swingman Mario West to a 10-day contract.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

The Hawks are expected to sign former team member Mario West to a 10-day contract.

West was cut by Atlanta in training camp this season. He has been playing for the Maine Red Claws in the D-League and won't have any fantasy appeal.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

Hawks swingman Mario West has an open invitation to try out for the team during training camp.

West hasn't had a guaranteed contract since entering the NBA, so he's probably used to this sort of pressure. His averages last season (0.8 points, 1.1 rebounds) make it obvious why fantasy owners shouldn't bother with him.

Mario West - G/F - Nets

Hawks swingman Mario West played a team-high 39 minutes on Tuesday, but finished with just three points, seven rebounds and three assists.

Prior to Tuesday, West hadn't played more than 14 minutes in a game this season. He probably isn't worth picking up, even if he gets extensive minutes in Wednesday's game at Memphis.
