Fortitudo Bologna is still hopeful to sign Carlos Delfino. The Argentinean returned to action at the Olympic with his National Team. “The market is always open and something may happen soon. Carlos Delfino? I still have hope to sign him” the president of the club, Gianluca Muratori, told TRC Bologna.
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.”
NBA journeyman Carlos Delfino, who hasn’t played in the league since breaking his foot in the 2013 Playoffs, is still hoping to make a comeback. “I still feel like an NBA player,” Delfino said recently to Argentinian basketball publication Basquet Plus, as translated by NBA Reddit user sebs24. “I want to come back to do interesting stuff. That’s my objective.”

The Timberwolves named executive vice president of basketball operations Sachin Gupta as their new overseer of basketball operations, making him the first person of Indian origin to run a franchise’s basketball operations. Minnesota is expected to have a full search process, but team officials are fond of Gupta and will provide him a chance in the No. 1 role, sources said.
Some of the issues were exacerbated this summer when Rosas and Gupta butted heads over Rosas’ decision to block Gupta from making a lateral move to the Houston Rockets with increased pay, sources said. Rosas said the timing of the request, coming right before the draft and free agency, made it impossible for the Timberwolves to let someone with as much proprietary knowledge of the team’s plans go to a competitor. The tension between Rosas and Gupta only grew later in August when Rosas banished Gupta from the team’s offices and granted him permission to seek employment elsewhere, according to sources. The issue was resolved in early September after ownership got involved and Gupta decided to stay.
One person who said he had no qualms with how Rosas led and thought there was a collaborative environment did say that the overall vibe in the front office was tense. Some of that, he believed, was due to the disenchantment of other members of the staff, but he also believed the pandemic played a role. “It is not a root cause, but it’s an accelerant,” the source said in August just before the staff left for vacation. “It’s not the spark that lit the flame, but it’s something that makes the flame burn hotter. We haven’t had a day off in basically two years.”
