Mario West, who was recently released by the Atlanta Hawks, has been acquired by the Maine Red Claws. He joins Bill Walker, Alexis Ajinca, and Trey Gilder (what a great basketball name) as recent additions to the roster.
To make room on the roster, the team waived Stanley Thomas. West, 25, appeared in 117 regular season games with the Atlanta Hawks over the last two seasons. He saw action in five preseason contests with the Hawks this season, putting in 2.2 ppg, 3.0 rpg and 1.0 spg. He was waived by Atlanta on October 22. West signed an NBA D-League contract and was claimed by the Red Claws.
