    Malcolm Delaney signed a deal with FC Barcelona on Thursday.

    The 30-year old PG previously had workouts with the Knicks and Warriors in the last few weeks, but nothing materialized. At this stage of his career, he is running out of time to surface back up on an NBA team.

    The Warriors invited Malcolm Delaney, Jodie Meeks, Arron Afflalo and DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell in for workouts on Tuesday.

    The Warriors currently have 13 players under contract, along with Alfonzo McKinnie who is expected to start the season at SF, so they are doing their due diligence for the final contract. Delaney, who averaged over 19 points, six rebounds and five assists in China last year, recently worked out for the Knicks two weeks back.

    PG, Free Agent

    The Knicks have brought in free agent guard Malcolm Delaney for a minicamp workout for the week.

    Delaney played his ball in China last year and averaged 19.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.6 assists on 46.5 percent shooting and over 40 percent on 3-pointers. We'll see if he ultimately lands a deal with the Knicks, but he has put himself in position to possibly get a shot in the G-League.

    Malcolm Delaney has signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Guangdong Southern Tigers.

    There's said to be a hefty bonus in order if Delaney can help deliver a championship. He was on Twitter this morning saying that he wasn't having fun in the NBA and that he could've returned to Europe as well, so he was a fairly hot commodity on the international market. Delaney was nothing special in his time with the Hawks but we won't close the book on his NBA career just yet.

    Malcolm Delaney said he has begun playing structured basketball once again.

    Delaney had to undergo arthroscopic ankle surgery back in April, forcing him to miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season. Delaney is an unrestricted free agent and has received attention from overseas, but if given the option would likely stay in the NBA.

    Malcolm Delaney has received multiple offers to return to Europe but remains focused on securing an NBA deal.

    Delaney wrote on his personal website that the NBA is priority No. 1 even if he knows that it won't be as financially lucrative for him as Europe would be. His overseas play earned him a deal with the Hawks in the first place, so it would be far from the end of his potential NBA career. Delaney dealt with injuries this past season and ended up being surpassed on the depth chart by Isaiah Taylor. He won't be a fantasy option regardless of his landing spot but he can probably work out a third point guard gig.

    The Hawks will not tend a qualifying offer to Malcolm Delaney, making him an unrestricted free agent.

    Delaney's season was cut short due to injury but he had been surpassed on the depth chart by Isaiah Taylor either way. With Atlanta adding Trae Young to the mix, there's no sense in monitoring any of their backup guards outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues. Delaney could be facing a tepid market and could return to Europe, where he had a strong stint before he joined the Hawks.

    Malcolm Delaney said Thursday that his goal for the week is to start running on the court and he believes it will happen tomorrow.

    Delaney underwent surgery on his ankle in early April and was given a six-to-eight week timetable and that seems to be on track with the integration of full-body-weight running. Delaney tweeted out himself that Thursday was the "First time running on full body weight today in 2 months," and also added previously that he hopes to start running on the court tomorrow. As a non-doctor this seems like fine progress and he will have plenty of time before training camp to be fully healthy.

    Malcolm Delaney is expected to need 6-8 weeks to recover from his ankle surgery.

    Delaney had a fairly disappointing season in which he lost the backup point guard job. Injuries helped that along to be sure, and he only played in 54 games. He was a top-290/315 player in 8/9-cat on a per game basis and a top-275/285 player in terms of total value.

    Malcolm Delaney looks to have undergone successful surgery on his injured ankle.

    Delaney has been on the shelf for a while because of his troublesome ankle. The Hawks haven't said anything about a procedure being done but it'd be very odd of Delaney to tweet this otherwise. Isaiah Taylor and Josh Magette will run the point in Atlanta's meaningless final games.

    Malcolm Delaney (ankle) tweeted that his injury has a 3-4 week recovery timetable.

    It’s rare to see players tweet their own injury updates. The tweet is a little vague mainly referring to a similar ankle injury he had in college and how he somehow played in just four days when it usually takes 3-4 weeks. The 29-year-old has already missed two weeks and according to his estimate it will take at least one more before he is back on the court. Even when he does his role is too small to have much fantasy value.

    DeAndre Bembry and Malcolm Delaney will not play tonight against the Jazz.

    Delaney has missed the last six games while Bembry has not played since the end of February. Both belong on the waiver wire and we should see more of Isaiah Taylor, Damion Lee and Tyler Dorsey as the Hawks head west.

    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Isaiah Taylor (back spasms) is listed as probable for Friday’s game against the Bucks.

    With Malcolm Delaney (ankle) also out, Taylor is the only true point guard backing up Dennis Schroder. That said, he’s still not really an option as unless you’re in an extremely deep leagues, there are probably better options to stream.

  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Dennis Schroder (left elbow sprain) is being listed as probable ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Thunder.

    Schroder played limited minutes against Indiana before sitting out against the Bulls. Perhaps the Hawks needed him out of the lineup in one of the finer tank battles you’ll see this season. He’s expected to return to the starting lineup but probably won’t play his usual allotment of minutes, making him a dicier play than he typically is. Isaiah Taylor (sprained ankle) is probable and will handle the backup duties with Malcolm Delaney (sprained ankle) out of commission. Josh Magette will slide back down to third on the point guard depth chart, though he did split minutes with Taylor against Chicago.
