2011 NBA Free Agency: Milwaukee Bucks Pick up Carlos Delfino's Option

Zach HerringCorrespondent IIApril 29, 2011

The Milwaukee Bucks announced that they will be picking up Carlos Delfino’s third year, $3.5 million option.

In his second season with Milwaukee, Delfino averaged a career high 11.5 points per game. He also led the Bucks in three-pointers with 105, even though he missed 33 games with a concussion.

As the Bucks' best shooter this past season and also being consistent on the defensive end, this deal was a must for the Bucks. Coach Skiles was always very confident with Delfino as a shooter and it paid off. Delfino had two 30-plus point games in March.  

Delfino should return as the starting small forward and hopefully the Bucks can look to draft a talented player in order to make a playoff push for the 2011-2012 season.
