Malcolm Delaney To Play In Spain

Free agent guard Malcolm Delaney has agreed to a contract with Spanish team Barcelona, the club announced in a press release. According to the announcement, it’s a one-year deal with a second-year option.

A former Virginia Tech standout, Delaney spent two seasons with the Hawks from 2016-18, averaging 5.7 PPG and 2.8 APG in 127 total games in Atlanta. Outside of that two-year NBA stint, Delaney has spent his professional career overseas, playing for teams in France, Ukraine, Germany, Russia, and China. He was a member of the Guangdong Southern Tigers last season.

Delaney had been seeking an opportunity to compete for an NBA roster spot this fall, having worked out for the Warriors and the Knicks. However, it appears no appealing options materialized for the 30-year-old.

A report last week indicated that Delaney was in negotiations with Barcelona. He’ll join a pair of notable NBA players who signed with the team earlier this offseason — Nikola Mirotic and Alex Abrines are among the new additions for the Spanish club.
