Baltimore native Malcolm Delaney to sign with Atlanta Hawks

In this Feb. 16, 2010, file photo, Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney (23) drives past Wake Forest's Ishmael Smith, back, during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game in Blacksburg, Va. A star in Europe the past several seasons, the Baltimore native Delaney is reportedly signing with the Atlanta Hawks.

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that guard Malcolm Delaney, a Baltimore native and a Euroleague star, has agreed to a two-year contract offer from the Atlanta Hawks.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Sunday because no NBA deal can be finalized before Thursday. The deal is guaranteed.

The 6-foot-3 Delaney starred at the now-defunct Towson Catholic and was The Baltimore Sun Boys Basketball Player of the Year in 2007.

He was an all-Euroleague All-Star in his second season playing for the Russian team Lokomotiv Kuban. He will be a candidate to play behind point guard Dennis Schroder, the team's new starter after Jeff Teague was traded to Indiana.
