Amos and Harriet West had a son named David West. Garner Magnet High School in Garner, North Carolina, and Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Virginia, were both his high schools. He began playing basketball throughout his high school years, earning first-team all-state accolades for Hargrave and was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team.
From 1999 to 2003, when he graduated with a BA in Communications from Xavier University, David continued to play. In 2003, he was named National Player of the Year by the Associated Press and the United States Basketball Writers Association while still in college. He was also voted Atlantic 10 Conference Player of the Year three times and was named one of the best basketball players in the country by the Lowe Senior Class Award.
David’s professional basketball career began in 2003, when he was taken as the NBA’s 18th overall choice in the 2003 Draft by the New Orleans Hornets. West signed his rookie deal, signaling the start of a rise in his entire net worth. He stayed with the Hornets for eight seasons, and during that time, he significantly improved his net worth by signing a new deal after his rookie one expired.
He elected to opt out of his contract with the Hornets in 2011 and became a free agent. All of this culminated in a two-year, $20 million contract with the Indiana Pacers. After his initial contract with the Pacers expired, he signed a three-year extension worth $36.6 million. In 2015, David exercised his option to become a free agency and signed with the San Antonio Spurs for a lower salary, but emphasized that he still desired to win an NBA championship before retiring.
David’s finest season in the NBA was the 2008-2009 season, when he averaged 21 points and 8.5 rebounds while playing for the Hornets, and he earned his two All-Star game berths in that and the following year. To add to his list of accomplishments, West has 8,690 points as the all-time leading scorer for the New Orleans Hornets — now the Pelicans. In the NBA, he has now appeared in nearly 1,000 games.
David West is married to Lesley West, with whom he has two children, and they have been married since 2003. David enjoys playing the tuba and making mix tapes in his spare time.
