JULY 17TH: The Bucks have officially signed Delfino, the team confirmed today (Twitter link).
JULY 7TH: The Bucks are set to sign Carlos Delfino to a two-year, $6.5MM deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The third year is a team option that could boost the total value of the pact to $10MM.
Marc Stein of ESPN.com reported earlier tonight that the two sides were nearing agreement on a contract. We recently heard that the Knicks were showing interest in Delfino as they seek out a solid wing defender who can also shoot it from beyond the arc. He also received interest from a club in China, but the interest wasn't mutual.
Delfino and teammate Aaron Brooks were informed in mid-June that they wouldn't be brought back as the club had to make way for D12. Had his non-guaranteed deal been honored, Delfino would have made $3MM in 2013/14. The soon-to-be 31-year-old averaged 10.6 PPG and 3.3 RPG in 25.2 minutes per game last season.
Delfino is a client of ASM Sports, according to the Hoops Rumors Agency Database.
