Delfino, 30, spent three years in Milwaukee after joining the Bucks prior to the 2009 season. Known for his three point shooting and defensive ability, Delfino was a key component to the Bucks’ 2010 “Fear the Deer” playoff run. Delfino spent last season with the Houston Rockets, where he played in 67 games and averaged 25.2 minutes 10.6 points, 2.0 assists and 3.3 rebounds a contest on 40.5% shooting, including 37.5% from behind the arc.
The deal is three years long, with the first two years being guaranteed at $6.5 million and a team option for the third year that would bring the total deal to $10 million. Delfino joins another former Buck, Zaza Pachulia in Milwaukee’s 2013 free agent class.
