Default Delfino Heading To Russia

According to Doug Smith his sources have told him that Carlos is likely heading to play in Russia next season.

Im guessing hes getting something in the neighbourhood of $5 million a season over there, which is far more than any legit offer he got from the NBA.

Whats it mean for the Raptors? Nothing, really.

They retain his rights for as long as the qualifying offer (about $2.7 million) is on the table (a year) but its not included in the calculation of the NBAs tax.

I heard Carlos had a couple of offers in the NBA the most significant coming from Detroit but that the money wasnt close to what he wanted.
