    Too bad we couldn't get anything for them. Really hope out of all the guys we have to let go, Garcia will be the one we'll sign back!

    :( Delfino's hero 3s will be missed!

    Good luck to both, hopefully they can come back due to the fun they had here!

    Hope to pick Delfino back up later. But I think someone will give him at least a 2 year deal. We'll see.

    Assuming released since there's been no news of a trade from anyone and it wouldn't make sense when people know our hand

    Inevitable. I think the Rockets have a chance at getting Delfino back at a smaller rate later in the summer. But I think with Canaan on board, Brooks is done. Unless Lin is moved. :p
