Argentine guard Carlos Delfino told newspaper Ole this week he has not given up on the NBA yet.

“From a personal standpoint, for sure I want return with an NBA team,” Delfino said. “Is it a long shot? Very long shot, but I believe in it and have been working towards that goal for a long time. And I’m still doing it. If I have to get minutes somewhere else while waiting for that NBA option, so be it. We’ll see.”

The 34-year-old Delfino, who has a long history of injuries, last played an NBA game with the Rockets in May 2013. He returned to the court last summer to compete with Argentina at the Olympic Games and had a rocky outing with 4.0 ppg on 23.7 percent shooting.
