Delfino just finished playing with Argentina in the 2012 London Olympics, scoring 15 points in Argentina’s bronze-medal game loss to Russia on Sunday.
He has played the last three seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks. Last year, he averaged nine points and nearly four rebounds on 40 percent shooting from the field, including 36 percent from 3-point range.
Delfino, who will be 30 at the end of August, joins a loaded Rockets roster. They currently are stocked with 21 players.
The addition of Delfino could cap a wild offseason for the Rockets. They signed restricted free-agent point guard Jeremy Lin from the Knicks and center Omer Asik from the Bulls to big contracts. And they were heavily involved in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes, swinging deals on draft day to try to acquire the new Los Angeles Lakers center.
