After an uneventful stint in the NBA, Tony Delk left the league to play overseas in Greece. In his only season with Panathinaikos, the team snatched up the Greek Cup, the Greek Championship, and the European Championship. But, out of nowhere, Delk was released in May 2007 and six months later, he announced his retirement from competitive basketball. The following year, Delk returned to the court for three games as a member of the Gigantes of Carolina in Puerto Rico's Baloncesto Superior Nacional League. In 2009, Delk returned to his alma mater to help with "managerial duties" for John Capilari's Wildcats. Then, in July 2011, Delk moved on to New Mexico where his title changed to assistant coach.
