   We're Adding A Little Something To This Month's Sales Contest. As You All Know, First Prize Is A Cadillac El Dorado.

Richard Delk, the nephew of former Hawks guard Tony Delk, graduated from Troy University this summer after spending his first two years at Mississippi State. He rarely featured in Mississippi State's offense, but was used much more on that end at Troy; however, his offensive game mainly consisted of the three pointer. (Delk played mainly off-guard at Troy to accommodate Michael Vogler, who is basically the perfect point guard. I really like Michael Vogler, and I want you to know this.) Whilst athletic, Delk is not big and not a slasher, and while threes account for about half of his offense, he's not that good at them (never shooting better than 35% from three in any season at either school). Worse still are his free throws, which have yet to be better than 59% in any season. Delk is a decent defender and willing to rebound, but he hasn't the physical size for the NBA.
