Report: Carlos Delfino, Bucks agree to 2-year contract
Free-agent guard Carlos Delfino and the Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a two-year, $6.5 million contract, Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday evening. Wojnarowski reported that the contract includes a team option for a third year that would bring the contract’s total value to around $10 million.
Delfino serves as a premier threat from beyond the 3-point line. He averaged a career-high 2.4 3-pointers per game last season in just more than 25 minutes per game with the Houston Rockets. He shot 37.5 percent from beyond the arc last season and is a 36.5 percent career 3-point shooter.
Delfino will look to replace the production of Mike Dunleavy, who signed with the Chicago Bulls last week. He’ll join free-agent guard O.J. Mayo as the Bucks’ prominent acquisitions. The Bucks are also expected to match any offer sheets to the restricted free-agent point guard Brandon Jennings.
Last season with the Rockets, Delfino averaged 10.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists. He previously played for the Bucks from 2009-12.
