It seems that Malcolm Delaney will take his talents from Europe to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. The All-Euroleague guard turned down Barcelona and will not show any interest to any other European teams. According to Eurohoops’ sources, Delaney said “no” to the Catalans’ offer of $5 million net income for two years. Since he wants to fulfill his dream of playing in the NBA, he is going to focus his attention on finding the contract he desires with a team from the best league in the world.

Serb Milos Teodosic, 28, is a deft passer and Europe’s top point guard. He has a year left on a $2.5 million deal, which doesn’t have an NBA out. Scoring combo-guard Nando de Colo, who played 97 games for the Spurs while Marks and Langdon were in San Antonio’s front office, is a free agent. On Friday CSKA Moscow plays Lokomotiv Kuban, led by All-Euroleague first-teamer Malcolm Delaney, who wants to play in the NBA. Ex-Knick Sergio Rodriguez, who makes $2.6 million at Real Madrid, bears watching as well.

You’re having a super season, you’re at an excellent age and you’re a free agent in the summer. There are already many rumors. What are your priorities? You definitely want to play in the NBA. In Greece it is rumored that Olympiacos as well as Panathinaikos have already approached you and there are also rumors about Barcelona. Malcolm Delaney: “It’s true that I’ve already had good offers from European clubs. Regarding Olympiacos and Panathinaikos that you mention, I know that it’s very likely they want to sign me. The NBA is the big priority and I’m not going to respond to any of the offers until the NBA matter clears up. If something happens and this prospect doesn’t work, then I’ll look at all the options and make a decision. I want to be closer to my family and enjoy basketball even more.

Malcolm Delaney: Last summer I was very close to signing with an NBA team. At the last second, something happened with the team’s salary cap and the deal wasn’t finalized. This year, I think my prospects are better… I’m going to wait for the NBA even if I have to risk losing offers from Europe. There is also China, a market that I view seriously, because it gives me the option to play a few months with a very good contract and then be available either for the Euroleague or the NBA.”
