    Rockets appear to have made an offer to Carlos Delphino

    Crdit goes to djohn2o12 for this story. Here is the link:

    http://www.ole.com.ar/juegos-olimpicos/espera-hace-pesada_0_745125624.html

    It is in Spanish but if you you'd google translator it basically says that Delphino is disappointed that he only has an offer on the table from Houston. (paraphrasing)

    It is apparently a 1 year offer with a second year team option. No figures on the amount of money were reported.

    Is he unrestricted? Not the worst player out there.. Would have preferred Oden though

    Why in the world would we want Delfino?

    Not overly excited about Delphino but why in the hell would you want Oden?

    Why would we bring a 32 year old wing player to our team this year? I don't believe the offer was really made. I Certainly won't until this claim is backed up by credible sources.

    SF: Parsons/Delfino

    If this is the case, it would seem as if the staff does not feel like Morris or White are ready to take on the backup 3 minutes.

    [Clutchfans poster making a story out of anything]We are obviously trading Martin and Lamb for Howard and will need a starting/back up sg since Richardson will be our only true shooting guard.[Clutchfans poster making a story out of anything]

    This seems to be a move for contention. Guess Morey is confident he wil land DH/AB.

    Don't we want to lose games and develop talent?

    I thought he overpaid for Lin and Asik.

    We need to land the pivot from LA to complete the reconstruction.

    You are trying to make it sound as if every free agent rejects the Rockets. Last time I checked the Rockets signed arguably the top young center and arguably the top young point guard in this years free agent class. :rolleyes:

    SMH at your post.

    If we can get Delfino for cheap, that would be a pretty decent pickup!
