How does an O.J. Mayo, Carlos Delfino backcourt sound, Milwaukee?

It is possible Brandon Jennings is in that mix as well (that situation is unresolved) but the two guys above are in for the Bucks.

Delfino is the latest, having reached a deal with Milwaukee on Sunday night, as first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed on a two-year, $6.5 million deal with Carlos Delfino that includes a team option for a third year that could pay him nearly $10 million, league sources tell Yahoo! Sports.

Delfino is primarily a spot up shooter, although he can do other things as well. He shot 37.5 percent from three last season and took two-thirds of his shots from there. He’s a solid role player who averaged 10.6 points a game for the Rockets last season.

The contract at a reasonable one at a little more than $3 million a year and the two years (with the option if they want it) is a very reasonable length.

    The bucks have taken the mantle as the stupidest team management in the league. They just offer bad contracts and refuse to foster actual talent like Ilyasova, Sanders, Henson, Harris, Jennings etc. Instead they put together a crappy team to just make the playoffs. I’m sure the fans would understand if management showed commitment to a full rebuild, rather than commitment to the middle of the pack.

      Jennings has gotten worse every year he’s been in the league, so unless you want to blame the Bucks for not developing his talent, he already peaked during his first season.

      Delfino is a good guy off the bench, and he played well for the Bucks before they traded him to Houston for Dalembert, so it’s good to have him back. This isn’t a “bad” contract by any means.

    Delfino essentially takes the role of Mike Dunleavy as a shooter off the bench. I don’ think that is a bad signing at all. And Brandon Jennings is still the Bucks starting PG. He’s a restricted free agent who has received no offers, so he is a Buck at least for one more year and possibly for multiple years since the Bucks have said they would match any reasonable offer. Jennings is not going anywhere unless the Bucks get a trade offer they can’t refuse.
