Carlos Delfino, Houston Rockets Agree on One-Year Deal

Free agent forward Carlos Delfino, who played the last three seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks, has reportedly agreed to a one-year contract with the Houston Rockets. The 6-6 swingman is coming off the London Olympics, where he averaged 15.3 points and helped Argentina finish fourth. Via ESPN.com: “Delfino also played on Argentina’s gold-medal winning team in Athens in 2004 and the bronze-medal team in Beijing 2008. He averaged 11.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 32.5 minutes in 2010-11, his most productive NBA season.”

    he will be Houston’s leading scorer.

    Why?? This guy is a chucker, shoots a bad % from the field, and Houston already has a billion forwards. Wtf is Daryl Morey thinking?

    because they are going to end up trading Kevin Martin. Are making a play for a top 5 pick. It’s purposefully tanking Teddy.

    Yeesh. Unless you’re a HUGE Lin fan, this team is going to be bad time in 2K

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    =( They’re gonna trade K-Mart for peanuts I assume?

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Still gonna be fun to watch though:
    1. Lin
    2. Lamb
    3. Chandler Parsons? Terrence Jones?
    4. Donatas Montiejunas? Patrick Patterson?
    5. Omer Asik
    A good young team… And I’m a HUGE Lin fan, lol. But man, wtf…
    Who will be better next year, the Raptors or the Rockets?

    Ted dongs reign as the worst commenter ever continues unopposed. He has outlasted the like of chukaz, greekfool, eboy. The trolls now are lame, but occasionally funny.
    Dong brings absolutely nothing to the table. Nobody enjoys reading his posts, it is drivel of the lowest sort, just hot garbage from the core.
    I know everyone agrees.
    Ted can go eat a bowl of dong.

    delfino is a 2 guard

    Peanuts or a 1st round pick. that would be my guess. – not a good one, but one nonetheless. maybe from a fringe playoff team, like Phoenix if they are in the 7-10 in the West zone. I know Shannon Brown isn’t a long term option there and they are looking to shore up the position. If Harden gets signed in OKC, I can really see them pursuing Martin.

    Ah, thx nbk.

  • http://www.slamonline.com nbk Troll

    Somebody needs to rescue Kevin Martin from this f*ckery. Houston is trying to lose, and i bet they still finish with a better record than the Awful Toronto Raptors. F*CK CANADA!

    Tarzan you literally are a caveman in every sense of the word and you live in Kansas, which is basically the sh!ttiest piece of sh!t state in all of the Americas. Clearly all those warthogs you’ve been hunting (for “survival”) carry tapeworms that are just constantly f*cking you right in the brain. Congrats on being the first troglodyte to operate a computer… Now go back to your cave/trailer park/wherever it is you belong and stop trolling me on SLAM, troll.
    I’m glad you like my name so much, though. It’s Chinese and has a lot of history to it. What’s your family history? Squatting in some forest, emptying out the sewage tank in your RV to… squatting in some forest, emptying out the sewage tank in your RV?

    From now on I’m ignoring you… This guy manages to k!ll every thread by having me insult him, and then no one else wants to comment.

  • LA Huey

    For the record, Kansas is Idaho with indoor plumbing and internet access.

    i could be wrong Teddy, that’s just the vibe i’m getting. and if i remember correctly, there was an issue between Martin and McHale last year anyway? So yea, that also has me believing he’s on his way out.

  • Nick

    As an h-town born rockets fan, I have to see this as a prelude to shipping Martin. Martin doesn’t fit in with what morey wants to do (youth movement, cutting salary, lots of minutes to see if lamb can develop) and he doesn’t fit in with what Mchale preaches either(he’s statistically in the bottom 5% of SGs defensively).

    Martin has way more value as an expiring contract/designated gunner than he does to the rockets. I’d be shocked if he’s not gone before camp. Delfino makes way more sense economically as a short term contract guy to split minutes with parsons and lamb at the 2/3.

    Ah teddy, you’re too easy. I’m in kansas city. From kck, but reside in kcmo. Independence blvd, and prospect. I welcome any of you to come visit. Its not at all what you might think. I’m in the heart of the hood. Lots of africans around here too.

  • bravo

    My Rockets stay winning. I like Delfino personally, but it shows that the team is headed in no particular direction, and they’re going there as slowly as they please.
