Carlos Delfino to Sign NBA Contract After Olympics

Free agent swingman Carlos Delfino, who is currently mulling a two-year deal from the Houston Rockets, said on Wednesday that he will sign with an NBA team once the Olympics are over. The 2003 first-round draft pick has played the last three seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks, and is currently playing for Argentina in the Olympic Games. ESPN’s Marc Stein has the details, via Twitter: “Ran into Carlos Delfino today. He didn’t want to go into specifics on eve of huge USA game but said he WILL sign w/NBA team after Olympics. Houston, I’m told, actively chasing Delfino, who’s at 15+ ppg on 49% shooting at OLY. Celts want him but can’t afford him, Doc Rivers says.”

    Delfino has had some big games in the NBA. He just isn’t as consistent as he should be.

    This most likely means k.martin is gonna be traded for picks.

    Always liked him, but too inconsistent. Every third game, he will go off, one he’s decent, one he disappears. Every 6th game, he looks like the best shooter.

    I always loved how hard this guy played when he was a Raptor. Some (American) players in the league have occassional games when they seem to have mentally checked out and just don’t give a damn. Especially during road games in Toronto. Delfino was hustling every night. Yeah he did have some games where he continued to jack shots even though he was cold, but thats what shooters do. When he’s on, lookout.
