Former Pacer David West Retires From NBA After 15 Seasons
INDIANAPOLIS – Former Indiana Pacers power forward David West says he is retiring from the NBA after 15 seasons.
West was with the Pacers for four seasons and was part of the starting lineup, including Paul George, George Hill, Lance Stephenson and Roy Hibbert, that led the Pacers to back-to-back Eastern Conference finals in 2012 and 2013.
West played for Xavier in college and started his NBA career in New Orleans and was an NBA All-Star in 2008 and 2009 before he was traded to the Pacers in 2011.
In June 2015, West opted out of his contract with the Pacers to become a free agent and sign with the San Antonio Spurs where he played for one season. West ended his career with the Golden State Warriors winning two NBA championships.
West announced his retirement on Twitter Thursday:
