   2017 NBA Manifesto

Malcolm Delaney
PG, 6’3, 190lbs, 28 years old, 1 year of experience

Mixed bag of a rookie season. Experienced, but not NBA experienced, Delaney often looked overwhelmed offensively, struggling to make any shots (especially at the basket), not being able to get to the basket or find the roll man in pick-and-roll action, and eventually becoming a pull-up two point jump shot specialist (which to be fair he was good at). On the plus side, he was the team’s best point guard defender, applying good ball pressure and reading the game well. If he can add three-point range to those twos then he can become a solid back-up point guard - it is not for nothing that Calderon was brought in to replace him for the playoffs, but nor is his Euroleague career to date for nothing. Needs a sophomore breakout.

Player Plan: One year and $2.5 million remaining, then restricted free agency. Keep for now in a bid to accumulate value and/or realise potential.

   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Point Guards

Malcolm Delaney - Delaney's senior season was slightly anti-climactic. Through no fault of his own, a Virginia Tech team decimated by injuries did not make the tournament, and so Delaney's 18.7 points and 4.0 assists per game were somewhat in vain. Perturbingly, both of those numbers were actually down on the previous season, but one thing that did improve was Delaney's efficiency. Delaney has always had a knack for getting to the foul line, but he improved his outside jumpshot over the years, and so even though he can't finish at the rim and lacks a mid-range game, he has become as efficient as a 42% shooter can be, being as it is all threes and ones. Delaney is quick, occasionally disruptive defensively, and he's always into the game. But he's a point guard in size only - like several outlined already, he's a scorer in a point guard's body.
