After a successful year together, Malcolm Delaney and FC Bayern Basketball part ways after the 25-year-old's contract ran out at the end of the 2013/14 season. FC Bayern Basketball thanks the Basketball Bundesliga's MVP for the unforgettable moments of a truly historic season and wishes Malcolm all the best in the rest of his career.
"Malcolm Delaney is an exception player and everyone at the club knows how instrumental he was in the great success of the past season. He is one of the best guards in Europe and it was clear to us from the start that it would be difficult to hold on to a player of this quality. We had a good talk with him and his agent and submited a resonable offer but we have to accept his decision. On behalf of the entire team, I want to thank him for his performance in the Bayern shirt," said FCBB managing director Marko Pesic.
Malcolm Delaney transferred to Munich from Ukranian national champions BK Budivelnik Kiew in July of 2013. The Baltimore-born Guard played a total of 47 Bundesliga games and averaged 12.0 points, 4.2 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game. Delaney quickly became one of the league's best players and was voted the league's most valuable player during the season as well as MVP of the Finals. Delaney also excelled on the European stage. In 24 Euroleague appearances for FCBB he averaged 13.9 points, 4.5 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game.
