CLEVELAND (AP) -Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West says he left the team's training camp earlier this month to seek help for depression and ``a mood disorder'' he has been battling his entire life.
West said Friday that he removed himself from the team to ``get my thoughts back together.'' He is taking medication for his illness and has been attending therapy sessions.
West said he was troubled by his behavior during a scrimmage earlier this month. He took out his frustrations on a high school referee at the Cavs' training complex.
West recently signed a two-year contract with Cleveland.
