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.
