HoopsHype Carlos Delfino rumors

January 5, 2013 Updates

Last summer, after a second straight lottery appearance, Milwaukee headed in a non-Delfino direction, counting on Mike Dunleavy and young Tobias Harris at small forward while committing to Monta Ellis alongside Brandon Jennings in the backcourt. Delfino was on the market until late August, his work for Argentina (15.3 ppg, 3.8 rpg) in the London Olympics done. It wasn’t Bucks GM John Hammond ringing his phone, it was the Rockets’ Daryl Morey instead. “I was sad in the moment. I thought I was staying in Milwaukee,” Delfino said. “I had a good feeling with everybody in the city, after you’ve been defending the colors for three years. Then when I didn’t have any offer, I didn’t get sad about that or blame anyone. It’s a business. But I was feeling more about the personal stuff. Getting a call. … I was more sad about that.” NBA.com

On national team coach Julio Lamas' recent visit to the United States to see Argentina's NBA players, he visited with Pablo Prigioni (New York), Luis Scola (Phoenix) and Carlos Delfino (Houston). He did not meet up with Ginobili in San Antonio. "Manu will not play in 2013," Lamas said. "He told me. So I think we should leave him alone. I have to worry about those who go. "It's not that I do not follow him because I see him play (on television) all the time. "But again, I have to assemble the team of Caracas." FIBA.com

Rockets guard Carlos Delfino told the Houston Chronicle the team’s offense has “become too predictable sometimes. Just because we know we have a guy like James creating and Jeremy (Lin), even if you are going to finish with pick-and-roll, from my point of view, you should be able to get another play before that pick-and-roll happens. It’s better to finish with a pick-and-roll in the last 10 seconds than the first five or 10 seconds, because the defense is already set.” Oklahoman
