    At only 32 (!) and out for last season, there are reports that he's healthy again and can play. I really hope he comes back, wish we had some room if he prove he can still play.

    I'd be curious to see what he has left. His last NBA game was in our playoff series against the Thunder. Two years is a lot of time away from the game.

    Would be a great fit for the Spurs, but would love to see him back in Rockets red.

    Don't see him coming back. I don't think he has anything left in the tank after his injury. It was a pretty bad one, and keep in mind he's taken 2 seasons off because of it. No one who had that good of a season off the bench just takes 2 seasons off. Plus, it's hard to go back to playing competitive basketball after 2 seasons of none.

    If Delfino is available and healthy then we should check on him. But who do we sacrifice in his name?

    True, still I hope a team like the Pelicans will pick him up. He's a winner and a vet, can help lead young guys.

    Take the risk? :grin:

    This ain't Yao Ming or Kevin Durant. This is 7th-8th-9th man, dime a dozen in the NBA.

    I loved Delfino when he was with us. No conscious shooter. The actions he made when something happened were priceless!

    Would like to see him play in the NBA again, no matter where.

    That seems to be the Lakers MO now. If carlos has any shot of making it back, it's theougg LA.

    This sounds like it. Jones + someone for an upgrade at the PF position, then sign Del3no as the 15th guy!

    Damn wish Delfíno would have kept playing for the Rockets! Same way I felt about Sura.

    He is worth a vet min. The revenue he brings from the Mexican fans alone makes it worth it. Harden can also learn a thing or 2 from his impeccable swagger but after what he did to Durant... he probably can't handle it.

    There's no risk there.


    I'm pretty sure Mexican fans know he's not Mexican by now. And i sure hope you know that too.
