With Mayo off the market and Lee possibly getting priced out of our range, the Celtics are looking at other options. Including, reportedly, Carlos Delfino.

Here are Delfino's basic stats.

And here is some recent discussion about him from the SBN Bucks blog "Brew Hoop."
Free Agent Rumormill: Ersan Ilyasova Still Looking, Carlos Delfino Not In Bucks' Plans? - Brew Hoop
Via our man Palomba, Argentine sports site Olé writes that the Bucks are not among the four teams in talks with Carlos Delfino on a new two year deal. Olé lists the Suns as one of the teams, while Mike Wells of the Indy Star mentioned last week that the Pacers had "legitimate interest" in the 30-year-old Delfino as well. As discussed, it's a bit surprising since Delfino was talking up the possibility of a return to Milwaukee just a month ago, and both Scott Skiles and John Hammond have stuck with Delfino through an inconsistent and injury-plagued three year tenure in Milwaukee. The obvious explanation would be that the Bucks have prioritized going after other guys first, though there's been very little talk of which free agent swingmen the Bucks might be pursuing. Might the Bucks renew their interest if/when some of their other options sign elsewhere?
