Free Agent Carlos Delfino Unhappy With the Milwaukee Bucks

Carlos Delfino is currently out of a basketball job — though he is playing for Argentina in the Olympics this summer — and here he is venting about the frustration with his former team, the Milwaukee Bucks. Per HoopsHype: “I expected to have at least a conversation [with Milwaukee],’ Delfino said. ‘I ended up aggravating my injury because I wanted to play with the Bucks. It hurts me a little bit that they have not even reached out to me. That’s life, things happen. I learned from the experience. Coach Scott [Skiles] and the owner [Herb Kohl] have been very good to me. The rest… I expected a little bit more. Sometimes you expect not to be rewarded, but to be recognized for your effort, playing through injury and doing things for the group… When that doesn’t happen, I don’t say that I feel betrayed, but I feel overlooked. Even though it’s a business, I think the general manager should have maintained the personal relationship and put value on other things aside from a contract. As a veteran player, I thought it was always good to play no matter what [despite the injuries] and so far it has only played to my disadvantage.’ Phoenix, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta and Indiana have all been mentioned as potential destinations for him with nothing coming to fruition so far. The 6-foot-6 Delfino, who is back on the court after undergoing surgery to repair a sports hernia in early May, said he’s not nervous about going to the Olympics without a contract. ‘It’s a challenge to be a free agent and playing with Argentina at the same time, but I’m not worried,’ Delfino said. ‘I get along so well with my teammates, this is a great group of guys. If something comes up (in the NBA), it will be welcomed. If it doesn’t, I’ll go back home and spend time counting cows.’”

    If he wants the wide open space to run and shoot because he is a good slasher to the basket and can defend, then he must go to Phoenix and be with his ARGENTINA boy Scola that would be familiarity, besides, what player would not like to have the green light to be a all out scorer for a team that really needs just that! good fit in phoenix

    I think at this stage it would be more news worthy if anyone wasn’t unhappy with the Milwaukee Bucks.

    Lakers, please. I would take him over Metta world peace or the artist formerly know as Matt Barnes.
