Well this isn’t good.

Troubled Cavs' guard Delonte West, who was recently arrested for gun possession in Maryland, reportedly skipped today’s first practice as the Cleveland Cavaliers opened training camp.

Here is the somewhat ominous quote from Mike Brown assessing the situation:

“On a personal note, you always hope he’s doing well,” Brown said of West. “But I have to continue looking forward and coaching this team. Whether it is Delonte or somebody else, if they miss practice and it is unexcused, it will be handled internally.”

Hopefully West is OK, but the Cavaliers have to be wondering how much they can count on the talented yet troubled guard this season.

With Shaq now in the mix, and with LeBron’s free agency looming, this is possibly the biggest basketball season in Cleveland, ever.

Keeping distractions to a minimum would seem to be more important than ever.
