Former 10-year NBA veteran and University of Kentucky All-American joined ESPN in 2014 as a college basketball studio analyst in the SEC Network’s inaugural year.

Before becoming an analyst, Delk was an assistant coach for New Mexico State from 2011-2013 and at University of Kentucky from 2009-2011. The point guard averaged 9.1 points per game while playing for seven NBA teams throughout 10 seasons, including the Detroit Pistons, Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors and Charlotte Hornets, who drafted Delk 16th overall in the 1996 NBA Draft.

The Brownsville, Tenn., native was a McDonald’s All-American and named “Mr. Basketball” in the state of Tennessee in his senior year of high school. Delk’s “00” Kentucky jersey was retired in Rupp Arena on Feb. 20, 2015.
