AP Source: Hawks reach 2-year deal with guard Delaney

ATLANTA (AP) A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that guard Malcolm Delaney, a Euroleague star, has agreed to a $1.49 million, 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, from Virginia Tech, 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.

Delaney, 27, was not drafted out of Virginia Tech in 2011.
